MATH 4670, Fall 2017

Matrix transform humorAnnouncements

Jul. 18: Syllabus will be posted before the first day of class (Aug. 14). Course text will be: 

  • A First Course in Combinatorial Mathematics (2nd Edition) by Ian Anderson

Aug. 14: No class Mon. Aug. 21. Once-in-a-lifetime chance to see a total solar eclipse!

Aug. 15: I just created a discussion forum for this course on Piazza. If you want to participate, you can sign up, using your UGA email account, at https://piazza.com/uga/fall2017/mathcsci46706670 .

Aug. 20: Asst. 2 problem III is supposed to be from Sec. 2.1, not (the non-existent) Sec. 1.3. The assignment PDF has been corrected. Thanks to alert Grace Ratliff for pointing this out!

Sep. 29: Starting Mon. Oct. 2, my Monday office hour will be moved from 9-10 am to Mon. 2:25-3:25 pm. (The vote in the two classes was 13-12 for moving the Monday office hour, and 19-7 for keeping the Friday office hour.)

Oct. 5: Test 1 (Wed. Oct. 11) covers Chap. 1-4 (plus extra material covered in class, such as permutation cycle structure).


Homework is due at the beginning of class. Problems are from the text unless specified otherwise. I prefer homework stapled in the upper left corner and not folded. Your write-ups must be your own work.
