- MTH 462/562: syllabus and course plan.  (For office hours, see syllabus.)
   PLEASE NOTE: Due to the closure in Winter, we follow the course plan with approximately 1 week delay.


IMPORTANT 1:
All answers on home works and exams must be justified,  even if  that is not evident from
                              the phrasing of the question. Answers without justification will receive partial credit at best.
IMPORTANT 2: Before turning in exams or HW's, write your first plus last name in the top right corner
                              of each sheet you turn in (even if you staple them together)!

                                 ASSIGNMENTS:
                                 Tues Apr 11: 5.1: 1, 4, 7, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 22. (Probl 25 is very interesting, but  not required.)
                                 Tues Apr 18: 5.2: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 31, plus: Show that multi-complete graph with partite sets of sizes {n1,..nk}
                                                                                                has 1/2( (sum ni)^2 - (sum ni^2) ) edges.
                                 Tues Apr 25: 5.3: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 11, 12, plus: Show that chi(G+H;k)=chi(G;k).chi(H;k).
                                 Tues May 02: 6.1: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 25, 29, 30.
                                 Tues May 09: 6.2: 2a, 2b, 4, 5, 7, 8.
                                 Tues May 16: 6.3: 2, 3, 4, 5, 16, 22, 35b for graph with girth k, 36.
                                 Tues May 23: 7.1: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 11, 18.
                                 Tues May 30: 7.2: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 17, plus: if mn even, then product of P_n and P_m is Hamiltonian,
                                                                                                              44 (hint: use THM 5.1.21).                    
                                
                                 MIDTERM 1: Tues May 02. Sections 5.1 through 6.1 (including HW).

General Announcement for Students:

In most of my classes you will be either strongly encouraged,
or even obliged to turn in your HW in *.pdf format based on LATEX.
Here is a website where LATEX is explained:

Student Research Projects:

I have many research projects, Most are intended for 501 theses or PhD level projects.
If you are interested in doing a research project in:
Dynamical Systems, Social and Economic Networks, Coherent Motion of Flocks, Topology/Geometry,
Fractal Geometry, Discrete Mathematics, Mathematical Physics, or others, please talk to me.
