2/19 Test 1 will cover 10.1-10.3, 12.1-12.3, 13.1-13.4.
Chapter 11 is relevant to the extent it is used by other sections.
1/29 For anyone who is interested, here is the promised
with proofs about infinte dimensional vector spaces which really come
down to cardinality arguments.
1/14 (revised 1/15) Office hours will be Tuesdays
1/14 (revised 1/15) Weekly review sessions start next week

1/6 Here are some old 544 quals.
1/5 Here is sample.tex and the
corresponding pdflatex'ed version sample.pdf.
It is a latex template for homework problems. If you are new to latex
(or not a complete expert), it may be helpful in demonstrating some
common constructs in mathematics.
At the top are several macros to define. You should set \student to
your initials. The other two macros change from problem to problem.
For your first problem, \problemnumber is 1. The second problem assigned
to you has \problemnumber 2, and so on. The other value, \problem, says
which exercise it is from the book, so 10.3 \# 4 is problem 4 from section
Finally, if you submit by e-mail, use the following convention for the
filename. If you initials are JJ and this is the third problem assigned
to you, the filename should be JJ-3.pdf. The next problem would then be
your fourth, so it would be JJ-4.pdf.
Transitive group data
which is really information about Galois groups of irreducible polynomials.
