Currently teaching

   Survey of Modern Algebra
MATH 461 P, Spring 2019 - Syllabus
Anybody can count: 0,1,2,3... We all understand the natural numbers. But what about the other numbers? What is a fraction? What is a polynomial? Can we write √5 as a fraction? And why do we do geometry in the Cartesian plane RxR, aren't fractions and their roots enough? And many more questions: What are the last two digits of 15612012986? Why are 1/7, 2/7, 3/7, 4/7... all periodic, and why is the period always six digits long? This course will teach you an abstract approach that solves all of these questions. In addition, it allows you to understand better the world of vectors and matrices.

   Metric Geometry
MATH 785 R, Fall 2018 - Syllabus
The goal is to study together the theory of length metric spaces, and their connection with combinatorics.
