ab: Beginning graduate students in mathematics and other quantitative subjects
are expected to have a daunting breadth of mathematical knowledge, but
few have such a background. The book will help students see the broad
outline of mathematics and to fill in the gaps in their knowledge. The
author explains the basic points and a few key results of the most
important undergraduate topics in mathematics, emphasizing the
intuitions behind the subject. The topics include linear algebra,
vector calculus, differential geometry, real analysis, point-set
topology, differential equations, probability theory, complex analysis,
abstract algebra, and more. An annotated bibliography offers a guide to
further reading and more rigorous foundations.
