Dr. Beaudry's research is in algebraic topology, more precisely in homotopy theory. She studies of the stable homotopy groups of spheres and various localizations of the category of spectra, a topological analogue of the category of chain complexes. Her main expertise is chromatic homotopy theory, which uses the algebraic geometry of formal group laws to organize information and streamline computations. In this context, she studies transchromatic phenomena and duality. Her work revolves around two important open conjectures (the chromatic splitting conjecture and the telescope conjecture) and she uses tools from equivariant and motivic homotopy theory.
MATH 2001 - Introduction to Discrete Mathematics
Introduces the ideas of rigor and proof through an examination of basic set theory, existential and universal quantifiers, elementary counting, discrete probability, and additional topics. Department enforced prerequisite: MATH 1300 or MATH 1310 or APPM 1345 or APPM 1350 (minimum grade C-).
MATH 2002 - Number Systems: An Introduction to Higher Mathematics
Introduces the concepts of mathematical proofs using the construction of the real numbers from set theory. Topics include basic logic and set theory, equivalence relations and functions, Peano's axioms, construction of the integers, the rational numbers and axiomatic treatment of the real numbers. Credit not granted for this course and MATH 2001.
