## Announcements

• 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 handout with proofs about infinte dimensional vector spaces which really come down to cardinality arguments.
• 1/14 (revised 1/15) Office hours will be Tuesdays 10:30-11:30
• 1/14 (revised 1/15) Weekly review sessions start next week and will (all) be on Wednesdays 12:00-1:00 in Wexler 103.
• 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 10.3.

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.
