Teaching

courses taught

  • MATH 3170 - Combinatorics 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Covers basic methods and results in combinatorial theory. Includes enumeration methods, elementary properties of functions and relations, and graph theory. Emphasizes applications.
  • MATH 3210 - Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Axiomatic systems; Euclid's presentation of the elements of geometry; Hilbert's axioms; neutral, Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries and their models.
  • MATH 4000 - Foundations of Mathematics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Focuses on a complete deductive framework for mathematics and applies it to various areas. Presents Goedel's famous incompleteness theorem about the inherent limitations of mathematical systems. Uses idealized computers to investigate the capabilities and limitations of human and machine computation. Same as MATH 5000.
  • MATH 5000 - Foundations of Mathematics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Focuses on a complete deductive framework for mathematics and applies it to various areas. Presents Goedel's famous incompleteness theorem about the inherent limitations of mathematical systems. Uses idealized computers to investigate the capabilities and limitations of human and machine computation. Department enforced prerequisites: MATH 2130 and MATH 3140. Same as MATH 4000.
  • MATH 6130 - Algebra 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Studies group theory and ring theory. Department enforced prerequisite: MATH 3140. Instructor consent required for undergraduates.
  • MATH 6730 - Set Theory
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Presents cardinal and ordinal arithmetic, and basic combinatorial concepts, including stationary sets, generalization of Ramsey's theorem, and ultrafilters, consisting of the axiom of choice and the generalized continuum hypothesis. Department enforced prerequisites: MATH 4000 or MATH 5000 and MATH 4730 or MATH 5730. Instructor consent required for undergraduates.
