Jerry Luo (罗佳捷)

A Portrait

Hello! If you were looking for Jerry's webpage, you found it.

I am currently a fourth year Ph.D. candidate in the Mathematics Department at UCLA.

Before this, I was at UC Santa Barbara, where I was first a mathematics student through the College of Creative Studies and then a masters student in the Department of Mathematics.

Once in a while*, I write about my Christian faith on my WordPress.

Galatians 2:20

Office: Mathematical Sciences Building 6147
Office Hours: TBD

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be William S. Massey's A Basic Course in Algebraic Topology .

I am intended to serve as a textbook for a course in algebraic topology at the beginning graduate level. The main topics covered are the classification of compact 2-manifolds, the fundamental group, covering spaces, singular homology theory, and singular cohomology theory. These topics are developed systematically, avoiding all unnecessary definitions, terminology, and technical machinery. Wherever possible, the geometric motivation behind the various concepts is emphasized.

Which Springer GTM would you be? The Springer GTM Test

Just for fun, I figure I'd put up my Chinese name alongside my English one. Unlike many of my fellow Chinese in the department (and academia as a whole), however, I am American! I came to the US at a relatively young age (of six) and grew up in California. Although Chinese is my native language, English has, for a long time, been my dominant and preferred language.

* Due to the fact that I usually have a lot of other things to do, it's quite difficult for me to find time to write regularly. As such, new writings will come out on a sporadic and infrequent basis.

As a Christian, my life is built up through faith in Jesus Christ. If you're reading this and would like to talk to me about my faith, feel free to reach out. However, if your intention is to get into some sort of debate with me, I unfortunately cannot be bothered.
