I'm Getting Better at This!

FRANCE | Wed, 11 Nov 2015 | By kakimono | Views [385]

In Integration, we learned a few more theorems about integrals and sequences of functions (such as Borel-Canelli Lemma and Fatou’s lemma) and defined negligible sets (having a measure of zero) and properties that are true almost everywhere (true ... Read more >

Is it the middle of the semester already? Because that would explain the midterms.

FRANCE | Wed, 4 Nov 2015 | By kakimono | Views [378]

Intégration was dedicated to proving the Monotone Convergence Theorem. The previous week, he’d given us a statement of the theorem, but said we didn’t have the time to prove it just then. But, with the entirety of a two hour class ... Read more >

Tests and Reviews

FRANCE | Tue, 20 Oct 2015 | By kakimono | Views [381]

In Integration, we started looking at integrals. On the first day of class, the CM professor had explained that the point of the class was not to teach us to integrate better. Which is good, because if that had been the point, spending five weeks without ... Read more >

I'm still taking classes.

FRANCE | Sat, 10 Oct 2015 | By kakimono | Views [412]

If anyone has been quietly thinking to themselves “why is she always talking about classes? I didn’t know she actually intended to study abroad,” worry no longer. As of this week, description of what’s going on in my classes ... Read more >

A Night at the Opera

FRANCE | Sat, 26 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [439]

My first scheduled activity on Tuesday was a harp lesson. Taking advantage of having a harp in my apartment, I was able to run through the piece one final time the morning of my lesson. So I could determine that I'd neither forgotten the piece nor gotten ... Read more >

My first in a long string of very long Fridays

FRANCE | Mon, 21 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [329]

My Fridays begin at 9 in the morning at Juisseau. Except, seeing as I don't live right there, and even if I did I'd still need time to get ready in the mornings, this required getting up significantly earlier. Early enough that the sun had not finished ... Read more >

And so another week of classes begins

FRANCE | Fri, 18 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [413]

Analysis has grown on me every time I’ve taken it. The first time I took it, I liked it, but it was basically just a math class. A math class that involved more rigor and writing than I was used to, but nothing super special. The next analysis ... Read more >

Time Flies When You're Doing Research

USA | Mon, 29 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [373]

Thursday was the last day of the algebra short course. We finished up our cursury discussion of category theory with a couple of examples and theorems, and Dr. Aktar asked if we had any other questions. Angelo wanted to hear more about tensor products ... Read more >

Modules on a Tuesday

USA | Thu, 25 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [372]

In the algebra short course, we continued our discussion about modules before moving on to category theory. Along the way, Professsor Aktar took a detour to talk a bit about motivation for some of these ideas and definitions. This brought us to homology, ... Read more >

Monday Again

USA | Wed, 24 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [307]

During analysis, we moved on to measurable functions on an arbitrary measurable space. It was almost entirely new material, but there were some concepts, like lim sup and lim inf that I'd encountered in my full semester undergraduate, which came as a ... Read more >

Another Week Down

USA | Sun, 21 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [272]

Friday's class began with a definition of simplicial complexes. I knew a little bit about them from the presentation one of my classmates had given at the end of last semester. However, in his presentation, he'd jumped right into the realization instead ... Read more >

On Wednesday, we got started an hour earlier than normal with a conversation with Dr. Phillips. He asked us a number of questions about our experiences so far at SUMSRI. Some of them we were able to answer easily and helpfully, (“What would you ... Read more >

On a Monday Morning

USA | Wed, 17 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [349] | Comments [1]

No one really wanted to get up for analysis on Monday morning. I woke up with my alarm at 7, decided it wasn't happeing, added half an hour to my alarm clock, and fell back asleep. For the first time all program, Dana did not wake up before her alarm ... Read more >

Today began the same way Wednesday did. Witth breakfast (my breakfast habits get very fixed very quickly. Pretty much every morning it's been coffee and a muffin, usually chocolate chip) and then resarch seminar. (Beginning the morning with coffee, ... Read more >

Fundamental Counting

USA | Thu, 11 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [297]

Today, the schedule was switched around a bit from what I've gotten used to. (I know, it's only been two days. I can't really pretend that I'm used to a set routine and be upset when they change it. But still...) Rather than beginning with a short course, ... Read more >

Please Don't Tell Me to do the Math(s)

USA | Tue, 9 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [332]

As I was updating my Googele Calendar with the schedule that I got from the program, my main thought was “we sure are spending a lot of time in Reserach Seminars.” This was followed by “well, duh. It is a summer research program.”... Read more >
