## MATE-1103 Number Theory

The theory of numbers has determined and keeps on determining, to a large extent, the history of mathematics. The study requires the development and execution of rigorous reasoning. The problems tabled, many of them disconcerting by its apparent simplicity, have been a source of inspiration for mathematics creation at all levels. Topics: During the first three months, these topics addressed will include divisibility, primes, linear equations, congruence, quadratic residues, multiplicative functions, diofantinas nonlinear equations, continued fractions, approximation of irrational, distribution of primes. If time allows, the last month will be devoted to topics selected by the instructor.

Caicedo Ferrer Xavier## MATE-1105 Linear Algebra I

At a first approximation (i.e. when considering small perturbations), problems in Engineering and Physics can be treated as linear problems. In this course the main objective is to introduce students to the main tools to model these linear situations: vector spaces and linear transformations. Vector spaces provide the structures of admissible objects, and linear transformation a way to relate these structures. In order to familiarize students with this very abstract branch of Mathematics, this course is focused on the study of finite dimen- sional vector spaces, matrices, scalar products and diagonalization, without leaving aside the computational aspects of this subject.

Bernal Pedraza Oscar## MATE-1203 Differential Calculus

The modeling of instantaneous phenomena is very important in the study of Natural and Social sciences. The description of instantaneous phenomena is engulfed in the notion of limit, and it is through its celebrated offspring, the derivative and the integral of a function, that it finds its main applications. This course provides an introduction to the modeling of instantaneous phenomena, mainly those concerned with rates of change, i.e., the study of limits and of derivatives. As it ends up being unavoidable, and being so intimately related to the concept of differentiation, a short introduction on the subject of integration is also given in this course. This course is a first step towards making students aware of the power of the language of Mathematics when used as a tool for describing and analyzing natural and man-made processes.

Casas Sanchez Oscar## MATE-1214 Integral Calculus with Differential Equations

This course is in part a continuation of the study of one-dimensional Calculus: one of the main concepts introduced in this course is that of integration. Here the student enlarges his/her toolkit to model instantaneous phenomena by the use of integration techniques. On the other hand, an Introduction to the theory of linear differential equations is also given: differential equations are the butter and bread of scientists and engineers, and, without any hint of doubt, they enormously expand the realm of possible applications of Cal- culus. Finally, as a first encounter with infinity and its paradoxical properties, series is a topic of study covered in this course; and again, as we want students to notice that mathematical concepts are not that far from real world applications, the study of series and its convergence properties derives in the study of Taylor series.

## MATE-1442B Geometries of the Imagination

It is intended for students to discover by themselves the beauty of mathematics hidden in one of its most representative areas, that is to say, Geometry.
