Instructor: Igor Pak
pak@umn (put Math 4707 in the subject line), x5-3855
Class schedule: MW 3:35 - 5:30, VinH 206
Office Hours: MW 2-3:30, room VinH 258
Textbook: J. Matousek, J. Nesetril (MN), Invitation to Discrete Mathematics, Oxford Univ Press, 1998.
Additional reading will be handed out in class if necessary.
Grading: Homeworks: 40%, two midterms 15% each, Final 30%
Difficulty: This is an introductory course in Combinatorics and Graph Theory. The students are expected to learn the theory and solve problems on the homeworks.
Other expectations: I would guess that the average student should spend about 8 hours per week outside of class to get a decent grade. Much of this time should be spent on the homeworks, but some should be spent on reading the book and absorbing the class material.
