Math 3593H Honors Mathematics II Spring Semester 2004

Assignment 14 - Due Thursday 5/6/2004

Read: Hubbard and Hubbard Section 6.11.

Section 6.11 (pages 663-664): 1, 2*, 3, 4, 5*.

Peter's Paragraphs
We are pretty much done now. I propose having an easy last week in which we do a lot of review of the large amount of material we have covered this semester. In view of this I have set hardly any homework. I also propose not to give a quiz on Thursday 5/6/2004. On Friday 4/29 I will finish the proof of Stokes' theorem and discuss Newton's theorem about the gravitational field around a spherically symmetric body (not in the book). I will probably talk about Section 6.11 on Monday.

It did go through my mind to do one of the topics we missed out earlier on in the semester, such as Section 3.8 on curvature. However, I think there is plenty of material that I can ask you about on the final exam without Section 3.8, so I think we should not bother with it. Unless you want me or Oleg to go over it.

The final exam is on Monday May 10, 1:30-4:30, in room Vincent Hall 206.We should compile a list of formulas which ought to be printed on the front of the exam.

And now, for the last time, by popular request:

Julian's Brainteaser
Julian has only one match left and he wants to light a campfire, a kerosene cooking stove, a candle and a cigar. Which should he light first?
