Instructor: Igor Pak
Class schedule: MWF 11-12 pm, 2-135
Office Hours: Mon 3-4:30, room 2-390
Textbooks: there will be no textbook. I will be
posting lecture notes from 18.318
course I taught last year that I am converting into a book.
These lecture notes (and additional material that's in them)
will cover much of the course.
I do recommend the following textbook:
J. Matousek, Lectures on Discrete Geometry,
Graduate Texts in Mathematics 202, Springer, 2002.
This book might be helpful to broaden your view on the subject and supplement the material in the lectures.
Additional reading will be handed out in class if necessary.
Grading: Home assignments 100%, no final.
Difficulty: This is an graduate course and the students are expected to solve challenging problems.
