- Course outline (pdf file)
- Summary notes (pdf files)
- Appendices (pdf files)
- A. Review of Differential Calculus (three pages).
Some familiar facts (and maybe some unfamiliar ones) from multivariable calculus, from a more "mature" point of view than taken in a typical undergraduate Calculus III course.
These notes will not be explicitly covered in the lectures, but the results
in these notes will be assumed in the lectures,
and you may use any of the results in these notes in homework problems.
- B. Some Linear Algebra (four pages).
Includes the Jordan and real normal forms for matrices.
Some of these notes will be discussed
beginning in the third lecture.
- C. Homeomorphisms, Manifolds and Diffeomorphisms (two pages).
Essential definitions and a few examples.
These notes will be briefly discussed in the lectures.
