- During the Spring Quarter of 2024 I teach the following classes:
- My one-page on the human worth of mathematics: Why?, here is my answer.
- My one-page on Rigorous Reasoning.
- You can find my papers here.
- You can find my talks and some mathematical animations in pdf format used in these talks here.
- Web pages for past courses.
- Web pages on special mathematical topics.
- I created Getting Started with LaTeX page with the instructions how to install LaTeX on a Windows computer. The installation recommended here will give you a choice of three LaTeX editors: TeXworks, which is a part of MiKTeX, TeXstudio and TeXmaker. You can try each editor and choose one that suits you the best. You can also look for a better one on the web. I use WinEdt, which is a shareware ($40) and available only in the lab BH 215. You can try this editor for free for 30 days. Here is a simple LaTeX sample document in which I prove an interesting inequality.
- I maintain the webpage Publications of the faculty of the Mathematics Department at WWU. The most interesting part of this page are the early publications that go back to 1922.
