Mathematics Reading Group

The Mathematics Reading Group is intended for those who have not had a rigorous tertiary education in mathematics (or those who have, but a while ago) and want to brush up on their mathematical knowledge and competence. (Although, given the time constraints, we emphasise conceptual understanding over technique). The readings are from textbooks in central areas of mathematics. The first incarnation of this group worked through the basics of analysis; future incarnations of the group may study algebra, number theory, geometry. The aim is to make the group accessible to people with a wide variety of previous mathematical experience, so there are no specific prerequisites - just a willingness to work through proofs in some detail. We meet semi-regularly (roughly every two weeks). This group will not be running during the first semester of 2011.
