Fall 1995

Math 496: Mathematical Modelling

Application of mathematical techniques found in probability and statistics, numerical analysis, differential equations, linear algebra and optimization to solve problems drawn from the life sciences, physical sciences and social sci ences. Familiarity with a computing language is recommended but not required.
Prerequisite: Mathematics 220 (Multivariate Calculus)
Credit: 4 units

Spring 1996

Math 120: Basic Calculus 2

CALCULUS 2: SCIENTIFIC MODELING AND INTEGRAL CALCULUS. This course continues the study of the calculus through scientific modeling. While Calculus I is concerned with local changes in a function, Calculus 2 focuses on accumulated changes. Models solved by accumulation functions lead to the definition of the integral and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
Additional topics include numerical and analytic techniques of integration, trigonometric functions and dynamical systems modeling periodic or quasiperiodic phenomena, local approximation of functions by Taylor polynomials and Taylor series, and approximation of periodic functions on an interval by trigonometric polynomials and Fourier series.

Prerequisites: Mathematics 109 or 110
Credit: 4 units

Math 312: Complex Analysis

The differential and integral calculus of complex-valued functions of a complex variable, emphasizing geometry and applications. The complex number system, analytic functions and the Cauchy-Riemann equations, elementary functions and conformal mappings, contour integration, Taylor and Laurent series, function theory. Applications to physics, harmonic and real analysis.

Prerequisites: Mathematics 220: Multivariate Calculus
Credit: 4 units

Fall 1996

Math 310: Real Analysis


A beginning course in advanced calculus and real analysis. Properties of the real number system, sequences and series of real numbers, the Heine-Borel and Bolzano-Weierstrass Theorems, continuity and uniform continuity, sequences and series of functions, differentiation and Riemann integration.

Prerequisites: Mathematics 140: Discrete Math and Mathematics 220: Multivariable Calculus
Credit: 4 units

Math 110: Basic Calculus 1

Spring 1997

Math 370: Numerical Analysis

Analysis of methods for approximating solutions to algebraic and differential equations by computer. Error estimation and stability are themes throughout. Topics include iterative methods for linear and nonlinear systems, condition numbers and Gaussian elimination, function interpolation and approximation, explicit and implicit methods for initial value problems.

Prerequisites: Mathematics 220: Multivariate Calculus
Credit: 4 units

Math 120: Basic Calculus 2

Fall 1997

CSP 2: Race, Gender and Justice

     In this course, we explore legal, cultural, and theoretical issues and contexts that affect how different people and communities conceptualize justice in the United States. We begin the course by considering readings that challenge the idea that the meaning of "justice" impacts all of us equally. In this section, we also examine collective "justice statements," including the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights, the Declaration of Sentiments, the Ten-Point Program of the Black Panther Party, the U.S. Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence, the French Declaration of the Rights of Man, and the Platform of the 1993 March on Washington.
     We then move on to a section that examines the racialized, gendered, and class-based struggle over the meaning of rights, nation, and freedom during the post-Reconstruction Era. Charles Chesnutt's The Marrow of Tradition and D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation are our texts for this section.
     Questions of (national) inheritance and legal, contractual and cultural relationships provide the bridge to the third section of the course. Here we revisit notions of 'equal protection under the law' and privacy that stem from interpretations of the Fourteenth Amendment. We use Supreme Court cases such as Bowers v Hardwick, Loving v Virginia, and Hawaii's Baehr v Lewin to examine the legal policing of private spheres in the areas of marriage, race, gender and sexuality.
