Current MSCS Graduate Courses ( Spring 2019, Fall 2019, Spring 2020 )

Spring 2019

MATH 512

Advanced Topics in Logic: Combinatorial Set Theory (Sinapova)
PREREQUISITES:
DESCRIPTION:
This course is on applications of forcing and large cardinals to infinitary combinatorics. We will start with an introduction to cardinal arithmetic, especially at singular cardinals, large cardinals, and forcing techniques. Then we will analyze their interactions with combinatorial principles like square, the tree property, and strengthenings of the tree property such as ITP.

MATH 515

Number Theory II (Jones)
PREREQUISITES:
MATH 514.
DESCRIPTION:
Introduction to classical, algebraic, and analytic number theory. Algebraic number fields, units, ideals, and P-adic theory. Riemann Zeta-function, Dirichlet's theorem, prime number theorem.

MATH 517

Second Course in Abstract Algebra II (Cojocaru)
PREREQUISITES:
MATH 516.
DESCRIPTION:
Rings and algebras, polynomials in several variables, power series rings, tensor products, field extensions, Galois theory, Wedderburn theorems.
