18.821 Project Laboratory in Mathematics

Class Info

Guided research in mathematics, employing the scientific method. Students confront puzzling and complex mathematical situations, through the acquisition of data by computer, pencil and paper, or physical experimentation, and attempt to explain them mathematically. Students choose three projects from a large collection of options. Each project results in a laboratory report subject to revision; oral presentation on one or two projects. Projects drawn from many areas, including dynamical systems, number theory, algebra, fluid mechanics, asymptotic analysis, knot theory, and probability. Enrollment limited.

This class has 18.100 as a prerequisite.

18.821 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by H. R. Miller.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Mondays in 2-143.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This class counts as a CI-M.
