Math 350H Spring 2019
01:640:350:H Linear Algebra Section

This course is a proofbased continuation of Math 250, covering Abstract vector spaces and linear transformations, inner product spaces, diagonalization, and canonical forms.
Prerequisites:
 CALC4, Math 250 and Math 300
Text: Linear Algebra (4th ed.), by Friedberg, Insel and Spence,
Prentice Hall, 2003 ISBN 0130084514. For this section, any recent edition of the textbook should be sufficient.

The course is strongly based on Math 250. However, we'll work axiomatically, starting from the abstract notions of vector space and of linear transformation. Much of the homework and many of the exam and quiz problems will require you to write precise proofs, building on your proofwriting experience in Math 300. From this more abstract viewpoint, we'll be developing linear algebra far beyond Math 250, with new insight and new applications.
Class attendance is very important. A lot of what we do in class will involve collective participation. We will cover the topics indicated in the syllabus below, but the dates that we cover some of the topics might be adjusted during the semester, depending on class discussion, etc. Such adjustments, along with the almostweekly homework assignments, will be announced in class and also posted on this webpage, so be sure to check this webpage regularly. Absences from a single class due to minor illnesses should be selfreported using the university system; for longer absences, students should email me with the situation. I reserve the right to lower the course grade up to one full letter grade for poor attendance.
Makeups for exams are generally not given; if a student has an extremely good reason (e.g. documented medical emergency) I may rearrange the grading scheme to accomodate.
Problem sets are due on most Tuesdays. There are no problems due on the two midtermexam Tuesdays.
Note that we will cover significant material from all the chapters in the book, Chapters 17.
Grading policy: First midterm exam: 100 points; Second midterm exam: 100 points; Problem sets and quizzes: 100 points; Final exam: 200 points (Total: 500 points).

Exam Dates
The exam dates are listed in the schedule above. Any conflict (such as with a religious holiday) should be reported to me at the beginning of the semester, so that the exam may be rescheduled.
Special Accommodations
Students with disabilities requesting accommodations must follow the procedures outlined at https://ods.rutgers.edu/students/applyingforservices
Academic Integrity
All Rutgers students are expected to be familiar with and abide by the academic integrity policy. Violations of the policy are taken very seriously. In particular, your work should be your own; you are responsible for properly crediting all help with the solution.
Problem Sets
The Problem Sets are available in the assignments directory on the course Sakai site.
Problem sets should be handwritten in reasonably clear writing, with an explanation of any assistance given. Typewritten assignments are allowable only by special arrangement (disability etc.) Scans of problem sets may be submitted electronically in emergencies (illness or accident) by upload to Sakai.
Some basic writing guidelines are as follows. All answers must be written in complete sentences; avoid starting each sentence with a symbol; ensure that each variable or notation is defined; number sentences or formulas as necessary so that you may refer back to them. To prove a "for all x", usually begin with "Let x be a ...". To prove an "there exists x" statement, you must construct a particular x satisfying the given property, so "Define x to be ...". To prove a that property A implies property B, begin with "Assume Property A...." Then deduce Property B. Sets are equal if they have the same elements; functions are equal if they have the same values; to prove something does not satisfy a list of axioms; it suffices to show that one of the axioms fails. On both problem sets and exams you may use properties in the text or class (referring to them by page or date) if they come before the problem you are solving in the development of the material.

Textbook: For current textbook please refer to our Master Textbook List page
Math 135 provides an introduction to calculus. It is taken primarily by students interested in the biological sciences, business, economics, and pharmacy. Math 135 may be followed by Math 136.
There is another calculus sequence, Math 151152251, which is taken by students in the mathematical and physical sciences, engineering, and computer science. Although it is possible to take Math 152 after Math 135, this is not a recommended sequence. More importantly, the prerequisite for Math 251 is Math 152; Math 136 does not satifsy this prerequisite.
Students who may need to take Math 152 or 251 should start their study of calculus with Math 151, and students who decide after taking Math 135 that they may wish to take Math 251 should follow Math 135 with Math 152.
In addition to the standard 4credit format of the course, a a 5credit format has been used for some of the sections, but only the 4credit format is now being offered.

Abstract: The BianchiEgnell Stability Estimate is a stability estimate or quantitative version of the Sobolev Inequality – it states that the difference of terms in the Sobolev Inequality controls the distance of a given function from the manifold of extremals of the Sobolev Inequality with distance measured in the gradient square or \[\dot{H}^1\] norm. In this talk, we present an extension of the BianchiEgnell Stability Estimate to Bakry, Gentil, and Ledoux’s Generalization of the Sobolev Inequality to Continuous Dimensions. We also demonstrate a deep link between the Sobolev Inequality and a oneparameter family of sharp GagliardoNirenberg (GN) inequalities and how this link can be used to derive a new stability estimate on the oneparameter family of sharp GN inequalities from our stability estimate on Bakry, Gentil, and Ledoux’s Generalization of the Sobolev Inequality to Continuous Dimensions.
Here's a \[\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2}=1\] test equation.

Proficiency Exams
Undergraduate Proficiency Examinations
The Mathematics Department offers proficiency examinations for selected courses. Depending on the course, and their performance on the exam, students may earn one of two types of proficiency pass:
 FullCredit proficiency. A student earning fullcredit proficiency for a course can get credit for the course as though he/she took and passed the course. The course will appear on the students university transcript with a designation such as to "By examination". The student will also receive any credits towards graduation that are normally provided for passing the course.
 Mathematics Department internal proficiency. A student earning internal proficiency for a course (referred to below as course X) is considered to have passed the course for the following purposes:
 If course X is a requirement for the math major or math minor, then that requirement is considered to have been satisfied.
 If course X is a prerequisite for another math department course (referred to below as course Y) then that prerequisite is considered to be satisfied. To register for course Y, a student who has proficiency credit for X (and has satisfied all other prerequisites for course Y) will be given a prerequisite override from the undergraduate office. (In the case that the course Y is offered by another department, the student will need a prerequisite override from the department offering course Y. A student who has received internal proficiency for course X, may request that the math advisor contact the offering department informing the department offering course Y that the student has passed a proficiency exam for course X. The offering department has the final decision whether they will accept that as satisfying the prerequisite for course Y.)
Fullcredit proficiency exams
Fullcredit proficiency exams are offered for courses 115,135, 151 and 152. Students receiving at least a grade of B on the proficiency exam can receive full credit for the course if they wish. The course will appear on the transcript as passed ``by examination''. A student getting a C on the proficiency exam will not receive full credit for the course, but will be granted Mathematics Department internal proficiency as described above. A student getting a D on the proficiency exam does not receive any type of credit and has to take the course.
Mathematics Department internal proficiency exams
The department offers internal proficiency exam for courses 025 and 026, and also for course 250. Internal proficiency exams are occasionally offered for other courses in unusual situations. To take the internal proficiency exam for 025 or 026, contact the math undergraduate office (ugoffice@math.rutgers.edu) The internal proficiency exam for 250 is offered to students who have completed the honors calculus course 291, or to other students with the approval of the math advisor or the honors committee chair (who will notify the undergraduate office of the approval). Once this approval is obtained, the student should schedule the exam through the math undergraduate office. The proficiency test for 250 may be waived for students with a grade of A in Math 291.
Evaluation of internal proficiency exams
 Course 025. A student receiving a grade of at least C will be allowed to register for 026.
 Course 026. A student receiving a grade of C will be allowed to register for 111 (Precalculus I). A student receiving a grade of B or higher will be allowed to register for 115 (Precalculus)
 Course 250. Proficiency credit for 250 requires a grade of at least B on the exam.
Restrictions
 A student must have the required prerequisites for the course in which the proficiency exam is to be taken.
 A proficiency exam may not be taken in a course in which a student has previously enrolled and received a grade.
 A proficiency exam may not be taken in a course for which a student is currently registered (at Rutgers New Brunswick) and for which classes have started.
 A student may take a proficiency exam in a given course only once.
Dates
Proficiency exams are offered at fixed times throughout the year (except near the beginning or end of a semester). A student may arrange to take the exam by contacting the Mathematics Undergraduate office, ugoffice@math.rutgers.edu The student should allow one to two weeks for scheduling the exam.

Fullcredit proficiency exams
Fullcredit proficiency exams are offered for courses 115,135, 151 and 152. To take an official proficiency exam the student should contact the office of the academic dean of their school to get prior approval, and to find out the rules for getting proficiency credit. This normally involves paying a fee to the registrar prior to taking the exam. Once this approval is obtained and the fee is paid, the student should bring the receipt from the registrar to the Math undergraduate office (Hill 303) to arrange a time to take the exam. Students receiving at least a grade of B on the proficiency exam will receive full credit for the course. It will appear on the transcript as ``by examination''. A student getting a C on the proficiency exam will not receive full credit for the course, but will be granted Mathematics Department internal proficiency as described above.

Mathematical Outreach for K12 Teachers
Math for Teachers is an outreach program of the Department of Mathematics at Rutgers University that provides exte nded coursework to consider the mathematics you teach. As the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) are implemented, you will be asked to bring students to proficiency in "mathematical practices" such as:
 Making math make sense
 Explaining and justifying mathematical work
 Strategically employing mathematical reasoning
 Organizing computational procedures
Centered at the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University, Math for Teachers draws on the strengths of a faculty dedicated to the art of teaching and who have made major scholarly contributions to the field.

Prehistory: Rutgers created a postgraduate study program in 1870, in order to award a certificate to people who took an extra undergraduate course after graduation. Graduate courses formally appeared in 1876. While taking such courses, graduate students were often appointed as a "Tutor in Mathematics"; this was the forerunner of the modern Teaching Assistant. About 10 people received a Masters degree in Mathematics during the era 18701906. When the Mathematics department was formally organized in 1906, it stopped admitting graduate students.
The first MSc degrees in Mathematics were awarded to James Barton (BSc 1871; Tutor 187374; MSc 1874) and Albert S. Cook (BSc 1872; Tutor 187273; MSc 1875). Other masters degrees were awarded to men who went on to become professors at Rutgers: Alfred Titsworth (MSc 1880); Robert Prentiss (MSc 1881); William Breazeale (MSc 1895); and Richard Morris (MSc 1902). The Mathematics Department had other graduate students of this type in the 1890's including: DeWitt, Scattergood (MSc 1997), VanDyck Jr. (AM 1899).
In 1929, a new Masters degree in Mathematics was created, requiring 8 courses and a written thesis. The first such degree was awarded in 1930 to Charles Eason. The first woman to receive a M.Sc. degree in Math was Eveline Stevens in 1934 (NJC '32). Professors Brasefield and Starke were the advisors for most of these students; their Masters theses may be inspected in Rutgers' Math Library. There were 9 MSc degrees granted during the 1930's, and 50 MSc degrees granted during 19401959.
The modern era: Although the Rutgers doctoral program was created in 1882, and the first PhD awarded in 1884, a doctoral program in mathematics was not organized at Rutgers until 1947. The first Ph.D. in Mathematics at Rutgers was awarded in 1951, to George Cherlin (Rutgers College '47, MSc '49). A total of 7 Ph.D.s were awarded before 1961, when the modern era began at Rutgers. Under Ken Wolfson (chair 19611975) the graduate program in mathematics gradually built up to a steady graduation rate of 13 doctorates per year in the mid1970's. It later shrank in the 1980's and then expanded again in the 1990's, reaching a high of 19 doctorates in 1995. With the economic downturn in the mid1990's, fewer students were accepted into the program, with the delayed effect that the number of doctorates has shrunk since 2000.

 Automated Web System
Honors Courses
If you are not yet registered in an honors course or an honors section of a regular course in the forthcoming semester, you need to apply for special permission by completing the appropriate Special Permission Form available online (This form is now closed). DO NOT use the Automated Web System to submit your request!
Requests for fall courses may be submitted during the previous spring or summer; requests for spring courses during the previous fall. When filling out the form, make sure you give a valid reason for your request (e.g. previous honors course, recommendation of professor, etc). Requests will be processed as they are received, so long as necessary information (current grades, references, ...) is available.
If you are already registered in an honors section for the forthcoming semester and would like to switch to another section of the SAME course, you need to use the Automated Web System to submit your request during one of the three rounds. Please see below for the dates.
Prerequisite overrides
A student who is unable to register for a course because he or she lacks the proper prerequisites should not request a special permission number. Under some circumstances – for example, if the student has taken appropriate prerequisite courses elsewhere, and these are not yet credited to his or her Rutgers transcript – please fill out a prerequisite override form.
If justification for receiving a prerequisite override is too complicated to adequately describe on the form on the online website, please go to the Advising Office of the Math Dept, room 308 of the Hill Center.
Closed Sections
Because of the high demand for many of the math department classes, many course sections are filled early in registration. Once the course is filled it is listed as Closed. However, we generally leave some spots open in the course to accomodate late registrants and transfer students. These final spots are assigned through the special permission for closed section process which starts shortly before the semester begins and continues through the first week of the semester. A student should first attempt to register through the Rutgers Web Registration System. If all sections that the student can take are closed, the student should submit a special permission form once the special permission process opens. (The schedule for the process will be listed on this web page shortly before the semester begins.)
The department makes a significant effort to accommodate as many students as possible during the process, and generally satisfies most of them, but unfortunately there is often not enough room to grant all requests.
Retaking Precalculus, Calculus I or Calculus II previously failed twice
Students who have failed Precalculus, Calculus I or Calculus II twice are not allowed by WebReg to register for the course a third time. These students should fill out the following online form and meet with the appropriate advisor. Students who have failed Precalculus twice must meet with the Basic Skills ad Precalculus advisor in LSHB room 102A, LIV. Students who have failed Calculus I or Calculus II twice must meet with the advisor in HILL 308 BUSH. Afterwards, the students have to submit a request for a special permission number following the procedure for closed sections.
Students belonging to schools other than SAS, SEBS, and RBS should see their Dean

Fall and Spring Terms
 Matriculated undergraduates should request special permission for admission to closed sections using the automated special permission system described below. While the special permission process is ongoing students should attend a section that they are trying to enter via special permission, so that no class time will be missed.
 Nonmatriculated undergraduate students and graduate students should request special permission for admission to closed sections by completing the appropriate special permission form available online. Decisions on these requests will be made during the first week of classes.

 Who Can Use the Online Special Permission System?
Matriculated undergraduates who wish to get special permission to enter closed sections of mathematics courses should use the mathematics department's webbased system.  How Do I Login?
Students need to use their NetID and password to access the online special permission system. Students using this system DO NOT need to have their own computer accounts or email addresses. They only need access to the web which is available on all campuses. Deans' Offices should be prepared to help disabled students with their special permission requests.

Graduate Courses Taken by Undergraduates
With the approval of the department, undergraduates may take graduate courses, under three conditions.
 There are no undergraduate courses in mathematics which are more appropriate for the student's program.
 Prior achievement in undergraduate or graduate mathematics courses provides a clear indication of the student's ability to do well in graduate level work.
 Admission of the student to the graduate course is consistent with the needs and desires of the graduate program.
Application Procedure
Students wishing to take graduate courses should consult the chair of the honors committee (Committee on Honors and Prizes), who will verify the first two conditions. If approved by the chair of the honors committee, the application will be reviewed by the Graduate Director in consultation with the instructor responsible for the course.
Who should take graduate courses?
Students who wish to take graduate courses should familiarize themselves with the other special opportunities available for undergraduates in the mathematics department, including the Honors Track, the Directed Reading Program, and Research Opportunities for Undergraduates. See our Undergraduate Program page for the relevant links.
Graduate courses are sometimes used to satisfy requirements for graduating with honors; specifically, a graduate course may count as an mathematics honors graduation unit. Students who wish to have a graduate course count as an honors unit must submit an application for approval of alternative honors graduation unit to the undergraduate math office.
Students in the honors track are encouraged to take some graduate courses in their senior year.

Daniel E. Gorenstein (January 1, 1923 to August 26, 1992) was an American mathematician. He earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at Harvard University, where he earned his Ph.D. in 1950 under Oscar Zariski, introducing in his dissertation a duality principle for plane curves that motivated Grothendieck's introduction of Gorenstein rings. He was a major influence on the classification of finite simple groups. After teaching mathematics to military personnel at Harvard before earning his doctorate, Gorenstein held posts at Clark University and Northeastern University before he began teaching at Rutgers University in 1969, where he remained for the rest of his life. He was the founding director of DIMACS in 1989, and remained as its director until his death. Gorenstein was awarded many honors for his work on finite simple groups. He was recognised, in addition to his own research contributions such as work on signalizer functors, as a leader in directing the classification proof, the largest collaborative piece of pure mathematics ever attempted. In 1972 he was a Guggenheim Fellow and a Fulbright Scholar; in 1978 he gained membership in the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and in 1989 won the Steele Prize for mathematical exposition." from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Gorenstein.

Advising
During the first year of graduate studies, students are mainly focused on taking classes, preparing for the written qualifying exam and adjusting to graduate student life at Rutgers.
During the second year students are focused on identifying potential research areas and advisors, and preparing for the oral qualifying exam.
The graduate program mentoring committee consists of faculty members who are each assigned a group of entering students. The assignment of mentors to students is not necessarily based on research interests. Rather the mentor is available to the student to discuss concerns that arise during the first years, and to help the student make contacts with potential research advisors. The graduate program director also serves a general advising role for all students.
The assignment of mentors to students should not bound students to limit their interaction with other faculty members in any way; we courage students to establish their own informal mentoring relationships with additional faculty. You may find useful information in the handbook How to get the mentoring you want, published by the graduate school of the University of Michigan.
Directions to the Department
The Department of Mathematics at RutgersNew Brunswick is located in the Hill Center* on the Busch Campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ. (Piscataway is just across the Raritan River from New Brunswick.)
The University page for Hill Center has a map and driving directions. Please click on the map to zoom out.
Also, you can find more specific directions to the Hill Center by going to Google Maps and entering your starting location. Make sure to click "The Hill Center" link on the left hand side and then click "Get directions" and also select "to here" or "from here", depending on what you need. (The reason for doing this is that Google Maps, and other maps sites, does not have the correct location for the Hill Center. Hill Center is across Frelinghuysen Road from the northeast corner of the Rutgers Golf Course. )
*The rigorous definition is as follows: Longitude 74.47168 W, Latitude 40.52180 N.
Our own travel directions are as follows:
BY CAR:
Because of road construction on and near the Busch campus, the driving instructions given below may change. The University also provides updated directions at University directions.
NOTE: Rutgers University has five campuses in New Brunswick. The Department of Mathematics is located on the Busch Campus. Road signs marked "Rutgers University" may lead to the wrong campus. If you follow signs, those directing you to "Rutgers Stadium" will bring you to Busch Campus, the location of the Mathematics Department.
From the NJ Turnpike: Take Exit 9 and proceed north (west) on New Jersey Route 18. It is recommended that you use either of the two leftmost lanes of Route 18. Follow Route 18 through New Brunswick and across the John A. Lynch Memorial Bridge. (Ignore the "George Street Rutgers University" exit.) Exit Route 18 at Campus Road (the sign also says Rutgers Stadium and Busch Campus). At the traffic circle, turn right onto Bartholomew Road. At the stop sign, turn left onto Brett Road. Follow Brett road until it vanishes in a maze of parking lots. Visitors with guest permits may park in lot 64, 60A, 60B (or at lot 67 near Brett and Bartholomew Roads). The Hill Center is the seven story dark brick building, located just behind the CORE building. A lot for visitors without permits is available near the visitor's center on Busch campus.
From Interstate Highway 287: Take the exit marked "River Road, Bound Brook, Highland Park" (exit 9), following River Road east toward Highland Park. Continue on River Road past Colgate and past the traffic light at Hoes Lane. At the next left turn lane (not the next possible next left turn), turn left onto Sutphen Rd. At the 4 way stop just beyond the stadium, turn left and follow Frelinghuysen Road. At the traffic circle, continue straight onto Bartholomew Road (i.e., ignore the first right turn and do not continue around the circle). At the stop sign, turn left onto Brett Road. Follow Brett road until it vanishes in a maze of parking lots. Park as indicated above.
Note: If you miss the left turn onto Sutphen Rd., you will soon pass under the overpass for Route 18. Make the next left onto Route 18 North. Exit Route 18 at Campus Road (the sign also says Rutgers Stadium and Busch Campus). At the traffic circle, turn right onto Bartholmew Road. At the stop sign, turn left onto Brett Road. Follow Brett road until it vanishes in a maze of parking lots. Park as indicated above.
From Long Island or New York City Airports: Take the Verrazzano Bridge to the Goethals Bridge to the New Jersey Turnpike and proceed as above.
BY BUS:
The Suburban Transit (18002220492) runs convenient express buses from New York City to New Brunswick. There a few places that they pick up and drop off from. Please check the website to see what is available.
BY TRAIN:
Train service to New Brunswick is provided by Amtrak and NJ Transit. This may require changing trains in Trenton or NY/Penn Station. Amtrak info: 1800USARAIL; NJ Transit: 18007722222 from NJ; from out of state: 19737625100.

How To Walk from The New Brunswick Train Station To The Hill Center in the Busch Campus of Rutgers University
Last Update: March 28, 2006 [to enter the name of Busch Campus Drive]
Previous Update: June 14, 2005. [To implement the new BuschCollege Ave walkway]
First Version: Jan. 14, 2002.
Written By Doron Zeilberger.
There is a safe way to walk, especially now with the new walkway. The whole way takes me appx. 32 minutes [using the new walkway] or 42 minutes [using the old route via Johnson Drive and the Stadium]. The instructions below also apply to biking, and the times then should be divided by 3. [Note by editor: Doron walks quickly.]
 Go to the end of the platform (away from the station, in the direction of the train if you came from the West (Trenton) and in the opposite direction if you came from the East (NY) ), walk downstairs, make a left onto [ If you came from Trenton/Princeton: George and then immediately another left on] Somerset. Walk a block and make a right on College Ave. On the lefthand side, walk to the end of College Avenue and enter Buccleuch park (about 12 min. walks).
 Walk another minute on a path parallel to George St., and a little before the Buccleuch Mansion, make a right that leads to stairs. Walk down the stairs, and carefully cross George St. to the bike path/pedestrian walk on the Lynch bridge.
 After about two to three minutes you have a choice: turn left down to Johnson Drive and go the Old Way (see below, that takes 10 minutes longer) OR:
New Way (June 2005):
 DONT's turn left (downhill), but go straight and continue on the bridge and follow the path all the way to the end [ 7 additional minutes]. This ends at Busch Campus Drive. Take a left and Walk a few steps to the corner of Busch Campus Drive and Sutphen Road. [the street sign just says "Campus Drive"].
 Cross [Busch] Campus Drive at the crosswalk (carefully! the stupid cars go very fast and do not even slow down for you, even though they are supposed to give you the right of way) and make a left. Continue (after a few minutes past a traffic circle) onto Frelinghuysen Rd., and arive at Hill Center (6 minutes).
[OLD WAY: (be careful when you cross River Rd)
 Follow that path. It ends at Johnson Drive. (about 5 minutes) Make a right on Johnson Drive.
 Keep walking until you hit Landing Lane (3 minutes) after crossing Landing Lane (carefully!) make a right, staying on Landing Lane.
 Walk on the shoulder until you hit the light at River Rd. (2 minutes). Push the button for crossing. When the light turns GREEN, Cross carefully (watching the cars that are turning left, it is your right of way, but you still have to be careful, the light is very short and the cars are impatient.)
 Now you are at the beginning of a steep uphill path that leads to the Stadium. You hit the Stadium at the Hale Center. (3 minutes)
 After you hit the stadium at Hale Center, walk on the sidewalk along the stadium. At the North Entrance, cross Sutphen Road on the crosswalk (carefully!), and make a left (1.5 minutes)
 After less than a minute you hit FITCH Rd., make a right on Fitch. On your left you will have a Golf course, and on your right you have first Dfield and behind it the Busch Bubble, and later Yurack Field. At Yurack Field, Fitch Rd. continues to the right. Instead of turning right, keep going straight, still with the Golf course to your left, and Yurack Field on the right. You can see Hill Center at the top of the Hill. Walk to the end of that path (it ends at Parking Lot 53A), until you hit Frelinghuysen. Turn left, and after a few seconds cross Frelinghuysen at the crosswalk. (8 minutes)]
