Math 1750 - Shameless Mathematica

Toronto, Academic Year of 2017-2018

Agenda: Sophisticated mathematics with Mathematica!

Instructor: Dror Bar-Natan, drorbn@math.toronto.edu (for administrative matters only; math on email is slow and prone to misunderstandings, so I generally avoid it). Office: Bahen 6178, 416-946-5438.

Classes: Mondays 10-11 and Fridays 10-12 at Bahen 6183.

Intended for. Graduate students. While there are no formal prerequisites, a high level of mathematical sophistication will be assumed. Typically this would mean having taken a few core graduate classes here, or their parallels elsewhere.

Office hours. By appointment.
