**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.
