**MATH-UH 1000A**

**Mathematics for Statistics and Calculus Part I**

**(2 Credits)**

*Typically offered*Fall and SpringThis course will provide the basic mathematical toolkit needed for students who do not wish to pursue calculus but still need to be exposed to the mathematical concepts and techniques that are required to study elementary statistics and mathematical models in the social sciences. Emphasis will be placed on the understanding of important concepts and on developing analytical skills rather than just on computational skills, the use of algorithms, and the manipulation of formulae.

**Mathematics for Statistics and Calculus Part II**

**(2 Credits)**

*Typically offered*Fall and SpringA fundamental understanding of mathematical functions is critical before engaging in the rigors of calculus. This course examines single variable functions, including their algebraic and geometric properties. By necessity, the course begins with an exploration of the following question: What is a function, and how can it be represented geometrically as a graph? The course delves into standard function manipulations and examines a range of mathematical functions, including polynomial, trigonometric, and exponential functions. The course further provides an in-depth study of trigonometric functions, trigonometric equations and trigonometric identities, including double angle and half angle formulae and their application. In addition, there is an introduction to the polar coordinates system and vectors in two and three dimensions. Basic sequences are also studied. By the end of the course, students will have a solid preparation for calculus, from the algebraic, geometric and analytic point of view.

**Foundations of Mathematics**

**(4 Credits)**

*Typically offered*SpringMathematics is a convenient and powerful language, providing a deep, unified framework for all scientific developments. All existing results from the three fundamental categories of mathematics - geometry, algebra, and analysis - can be formally expressed in terms of set theory, predicates, quantifiers, and logical connectives. This course explores the axiomatic method, some elements of logic and formal languages, and set theory. In addition, the system of real numbers and all other fundamental number systems can be firmly established on the ground of natural numbers; therefore, the course introduces elementary arithmetic and the universal method of constructing new objects from already known sets by means of equivalence relations. Abstract concepts are introduced through basic but fundamental and universal examples or problems, carefully chosen as illuminants of broader ideas and sources of new theoretical and practical applications.

**Calculus with Applications to Science and Engineering**

**(4 Credits)**

*Typically offered*Fall and SpringThis course presents the basic principles of calculus by examining functions and their derivatives and integrals with a special emphasis placed on the utilitarian nature of the subject material. Since the derivative measures the instantaneous rate of change of a function and the definite integral measures the total accumulation of a function over an interval, these two ideas form the basis for nearly all mathematical formulas in science, engineering, economics, and other fields. This course also provides instruction in how to model situations in order to solve problems. Applications include graphing, and maximizing and minimizing functions. In addition to two weekly lectures, students attend a weekly recitation focused on applications. Placement into Calculus with Applications is decided by discussion with mentors and the results of a mathematics placement examination. This course focuses on the needs of students in science and engineering.

**Mathematical Modeling**

**(4 Credits)**

*Typically offered*Fall of even numbered yearsOften, the most difficult task of the applied mathematician is the formulation of an analyzable model in the face of a perplexing phenomenon or data set. This course gives students an introduction to all aspects of this process. The basic tools of modeling, including dimensional analysis, asymptotic approximations, qualitative analysis of differential equations, elementary probability, are presented. They are then used, sometimes in combination with very simple numerical simulations, to give a mathematical formulation of and to analyze several self-contained examples, taken mostly from the natural sciences. Students will also be asked to develop or analyze a model of their own choice, in a field of their interest.

*Typically offered*SpringThe research seminar provides students with an overview of the diverse multidisciplinary research areas that have captured the interest and fascination of NYUAD mathematicians. Through exposure to NYUAD faculty research, students identify areas of interest for their own capstone research and develop and write an in-depth research proposal over the course of the semester. The final capstone proposal is due at the end of the seminar so that students can begin the Capstone Project in Mathematics 1. Students who have chosen Mathematics as their secondary major do not need to complete the research seminar course; students must instead take two courses in their chosen elective which are not research courses.

**Number Theory and Cryptography**

**(4 Credits)**

*Typically offered*occasionallyCryptology existed since the ancient times with the art of ciphers and codes and has now evolved to become a branch of mathematics and computer science that develops the tools and the algorithms underpinning its two divisions: cryptography (development of protocols for the security, authentication and safety of communication) and cryptanalysis (the science of breaking cryptosystems). Before the modern era, cryptography was concerned solely with data confidentiality. For that purpose, classical cryptosystems involving symmetric-key algorithms have been developed. In recent decades, the field has been revolutionized with the invention of asymmetric-key encryption algorithms such as public-key ciphers and later expanded beyond confidentiality concerns to include techniques for user authentication, data integrity checking, data origin authentication, digital signatures, interactive proofs, and secure computation, amongst others. Modern cryptography hence relied on a great deal of fascinating mathematics arising from elementary number theory and the more recent advances expanded to include arithmetic algebraic geometry and algebraic number theory.

**Dynamical Systems**

**(4 Credits)**

*Typically offered*every other yearMany laws of physics are formulated as differential equations or partial differential equations, e.g. the propagation of sound waves, the diffusion of a gas, and the flow of a fluid. These equations are usually nonlinear and the study of their dynamical properties (long time behavior, changes of properties of solutions, …) turns out to be very difficult. The goal of this course is to study some simple aspects of dynamical systems and chaos. Applications to physics, chemistry, biology, and population dynamics are given. In particular, the course will involve the study of many examples coming from physics, biology and engineering. The examples studied will depend on the interests of the students and their majors.

**Differential Geometry**

**(4 Credits)**

*Typically offered*every other yearThis course is a transition from vector calculus to differential geometry, the study of curved spaces. The course plan is to move from a study of extrinsic geometry of curves and surfaces in space, familiar from multivariable calculus, to the intrinsic geometry of manifolds. This includes the study of tangent spaces and vector fields and the concept of Riemannian manifolds and leading to explicit characterizations of metrics, connections, and curvatures. Computational tools will include tensor algebra and differential forms. Using these, derivatives on manifolds and integration on manifolds will generalize the corresponding notions from multivariable calculus. Further topics also include the Euler characteristic, The Gauss-Bonnet theorem, symmetry, homogeneous spaces, and applications such as Electromagnetism and General Relativity.
