Multivariable Mathematics: Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, and Manifolds

So far as grades are concerned, students who master the computational content of the course the standard and material ordinarily earn at least a B. Students who would like some guidance in reading and writing proofs might want to look at a wonderful new book called How to Think Like a Mathematician: This is an introductory course in Probability Theory.

Jim Pitman's Probability is a good reference. The course is a study of curvature and its implications. The course begins with a study of curves, focusing on the local theory with the Frenet frame, and culminating in some global results on total curvature.

We move on to the local theory of surfaces including Gauss's amazing result that there's no way to map the earth faithfully on a piece of paper and heading to the Gauss-Bonnet Theorem, which relates total curvature of a surface to its topology Euler characteristic. As time permits, we'll discuss either hyperbolic geometry or calculus of variations at the end of the course.

We will cover standard material on Riemannian manifolds starting with a "review" of curves and surfaces in R 3 , the basics of the Levi-Civita connection, geodesics, geodesic polar coordinates, submanifolds and the Gauss and Codazzi equations, and the Cartan-Hadamard Theorem.


We will incorporate a moving-frames approach along with the standard covariant derivative approach. There will be some general discussion of connections on vector bundles, homogeneous spaces, and symmetric spaces.

Depending on the interests of the clientele, we can cover some complex manifold theory or Gauss-Bonnet and Chern classes via differential forms. Guide to WeBWork. Lambda Alliance. Because of rampant paranoia on the part of the UGA administration, I am "obliged" to add the following disclaimer:.

As we find out about them, we will be maintaining a list of errata and typos.

The text integrates the linear algebra and calculus material, emphasizing the theme of implicit versus explicit. It includes proofs and all the theory of the calculus without giving short shrift to computations and physical applications. There is, as always, the obligatory list of errata and typos ; please email me if you have any comments or have discovered any errors. Click here if you want a list of errata in the solutions manual.

We are currently recording the first semester covering through the basics of linear algebra and differential calculus ; the second semester covering integration, manifolds, and eigenvalues is already posted.

I began self-studying on my own a couple months ago, using Salas's calc text.

His text, Multivariable Mathematics, arrived in the mail yesterday evening! It's a freakin' gorgeous book, and I'm super excited to start. I have three questions. In terms of coverage, how does this book compare with something like Munkres, Calculus on Manifolds?

Is there significant overlap? Will I be prepared for Munkres after reading Shifrin?

The ideas there are just so lovely, and so nicely explained. The idea of linear maps is a beautiful one, and I'm amazed at how it generalizes the results of single-variable calc. Matrices, matrix multiplication, and the like can seem so unmotivated and pointless, until one sees that matrix multiplication is the algebra behind the composition of linear maps.

Historically, was it the need to put multivariable calc on a sound footing that motivated the development of linear algebra? I wonder: Why or how!

I mean, Shifrin strives to show the connection between linear algebra and multivariable calc, and this is an unusual approach, right?Launching Xcode This is beautiful because the theory of linear maps i. But in all, I can't hate this text for the sake of its effort to really make students understand the interplay and rigorous nature of mathematics. Linear Transformations and Change of Basis.

I do love reading books zealously . Please check my other posts. I have a variety of hobbies, like grand prix motorcycle racing.
