I'm Getting Better at This!

FRANCE | Wed, 11 Nov 2015 | By kakimono | Views [248]

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 [250]

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 [245]

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 [294]

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 >

I never could get the hang of Thursdays

FRANCE | Mon, 28 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [299]

Because I switched my French class, I no longer have a five hour break on Thursdays. Instead, I have a class from 10:45-12:45, and then I'm done. That class was topology. He didn't get around to defining homeomorphism, which means that the material ... Read more >

And on Wednesdays I question my sanity

USA | Sat, 26 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [191]

I'd succeeded in changing my TD section, though it didn't feel like a terribly dramatic change. It was the same day of the week, same time, same building, and even the same floor. Basically, everything was the same except that the professor was different ... Read more >

Topology and languages part two: the easy version of Wednesday

FRANCE | Sun, 20 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [307]

Thursday required me getting up in time to be at a 10:45 class. It is one of only two morning classes I have this semester. Life is rough. The class in question was topology. I think it won the dubious title of most comprehensible topology class ... Read more >

I'm not sure what language this is, but I think I understand

FRANCE | Sat, 19 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [191]

You'd think that, after one week of classes, I'd have enough familiarity with my schedule to be able to match names to numbers. Certainly, when I'm looking up the classrooms for the TDs, I'd pay accurate attention to which class I'm going to be going ... Read more >

And then there's topology

FRANCE | Sun, 13 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [147]

I didn't realise until I got to campus that my next class (by process of elimination, that one had to be topology) that this class did not take place at the same lecture hall my previous one had. In fact, this one didn't take place at a numbered lecture ... Read more >

The Return of Project 1

USA | Fri, 19 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [167]

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 >

One Week Down

USA | Sat, 13 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [246]

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 >

Problem One

USA | Fri, 12 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [212]

Like Tuesday, today began with with the algebra short course. We got a new packet, though we spent the entire day finishing u pmaterial from the first packet. Which meant more groups, normal subgroups, quotient groups, and homomorphisms. So more Abstract ... Read more >

Fundamental Counting

USA | Thu, 11 Jun 2015 | By kakimono | Views [178]

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 [238]

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 >
