here's a guide to the (numerous) abbreviations i use when lecturing

Serge Lang,

this course will be a continuation of math 601. the expected topics are galois theory, extensions of rings, transcendental extensions, representations of one endomorphism, the tensor product, semisimplicity, and representations of finite groups.

homework will be assigned throughout the week and due the following monday. late assignments will not be accepted, unless you have obtained written confirmation (over email) of an extension from me in advance. you are strongly encouraged to collaborate with each other on homework, but your assignments must be written up independently and in your own words. copying is forbidden.

there will be an in-class midterm on wednesday, march 29. the second midterm will be on friday, may 5, in krieger 413 from 12:00-1:20.

if you have to miss either midterm for a documented, legitimate excuse, then the corresponding component of your final grade will be calculated by prorating your final exam score. in case of sickness, a doctor's note must be obtained on or promptly after the exam date. there will be no make-up exams.

60% homework, 20% each midterm
