Then you learn the construction of real numbers and that's pretty amazing. Then you look at complex analysis, and integration along lines, and it's pretty amazing. Math is pretty amazing, and the more you learn the more cool it is. Just because you know something very well, doesn't mean it's cool; it just means you're acclimated to how amazing it is. I bet when you were a kid and the teacher told you about the number e, you were like "shit, that's actually kinda neat". Now dealing with e is like "eh whatever". But you should still realize that's in cool, you're just used to the coolness that youdon't notice it anymore.

In general the metric could be anything however the invariant interval for relativistic proper time, in natural units, is $(dS)^2 = (dx)^2 + (dy)^2 + (dz)^2 - (dt)^2$. That is the same quantity no matter the reference frame and if you integrate you are essentially calculating the "distance between two events". So by inspection you can see the space indices are +ve while the time one is -ve.

You lose three of this lives if you give the wrong answer no matter how many you used to help you out.

Define a map between h: Cyl(X) -> C by choosing any of the two maps X -> Cyl(X), then taking its homotopy inverse, and then composing that with the corresponding map X -> C. Finally, define H: Cyl(X) -> Y as the composite of h and K. Check commutativity to see that this is a left homotopy, and apply 4.71.

So either that elective has more advanced prerequisites or it's meant for the applied math folks.In case you're interested in that stuff, check out Lee's introduction to smooth manifolds or the more brief Tu's introduction to manifolds.

Then you can take a course/read a book which treats probability mathematically. I don't know if it gives a huge advantage for applications, but as a mathematician you'll have to know it anyway. Some economists use quite advanced measure theory in their papers.https://www.math.ucdavis.edu/~hunter/measure_theory/ is a good overview.Basically you should ignnore everything applied and take only mathematical courses in that case.

Mehrling of Columbia University in the United States that is available on Coursera.org. This course explains the basics behind money and banking that are essential in understanding the financial system. According to Professor Mehrling, the financial system is about balancing flexibility and discipline.Professor Mehrling builds on his own background in the history of monetary economics and financial economics. He sees himself in the American tradition of monetary thought that is based on the tradition of British central banking thought. Each generation had to rethink the underlying issues for themselves in order to make sense of the conditions of their own time. The current challenge is to work out the implications of financial globalisation for money, banking and central banking.
 >> Anonymous Wed Mar 3 05:19:09 2021 No.12779813 >>12779809 The Economics of Money & BankingThe last three or four decades have seen a remarkable evolution in the institutions that comprise the modern monetary system. The financial crisis of 2007-2009 is a wakeup call that we need a similar evolution in the analytical apparatus and theories that we use to understand that system. Produced and sponsored by the Institute for New Economic Thinking, this course is an attempt to begin the process of new economic thinking by reviving and updating some forgotten traditions in monetary thought that have become newly relevant.Three features of the new system are central.Most important, the intertwining of previously separate capital markets and money markets has produced a system with new dynamics as well as new vulnerabilities. The financial crisis revealed those vulnerabilities for all to see. The result was two years of desperate innovation by central banking authorities as they tried first this, and then that, in an effort to stem the collapse.Second, the global character of the crisis has revealed the global character of the system, which is something new in postwar history but not at all new from a longer time perspective. Central bank cooperation was key to stemming the collapse, and the details of that cooperation hint at the outlines of an emerging new international monetary order.Third, absolutely central to the crisis was the operation of key derivative contracts, most importantly credit default swaps and foreign exchange swaps. Modern money cannot be understood separately from modern finance, nor can modern monetary theory be constructed separately from modern financial theory. That's the reason this course places dealers, in both capital markets and money markets, at the very center of the picture, as profit-seeking suppliers of market liquidity to the new system of market-based credit.Perry G.

Here's what I have so far. Let $f: A\to B$ be a homotopy equivalence and $p: E\to B$ be a fibration. Since f is a homotopy equivalence, there is a map $g: B\to A$ such that $fg\simeq 1_B, gf\simeq 1_A$. Let $\tilde{f}: E\times_BA \to E, \tilde{p}: E\times_BA \to A$ be the projections respectively. Since $fg\simeq 1_B$, there is a homotopy $H: B\times I \to B$ such that $H_0 = 1_B, H_1 = fg$. Composing by p, we get another homotopy $H^p: E\times I \to B$ such that $H^p_0 = p, H^p_1 = fgp$. Let $E\to A$ be the map gp and let $E\to E$ be the map $H^p_0: E\to E$. By the universal property of the pullback, there is a map $\tilde{g}: E\to E\times_B A$ that makes the pullback diagram commute. Clearly, $\tilde{f}\tilde{g} \simeq 1_E$. However, I cannot show for the life of me that $\tilde{g}\tilde{f}\simeq 1_{E\times_B A}$. please halp :c

Then they prove the theorem "every neighborhood is an open set". Their proof makes sense but doesn't it assume some sort of continuity to the metric space? the definition seems to allow for discrete sets. The integers form a metric space and the neighborhood about 0 of radius 2 contains a finite number of elements (3 exactly) and is obviously not open. did i miss something that said the space has to be continuous?
 >> Anonymous Fri Mar 5 02:35:36 2021 No.12791809 >>12791790nvm i just needed another minute to think about it. somewhat counterintuitively, my example is an open set because every point is an interior point, since all neighborhoods of radius 0.5 contain only the center point, but a limit point needs to contain at least one other element in every neighborhood.

You need to have the right balance between minimizing life loss and maximizing points gained.I took all of that into account.

I want to git gud at math for computer science, and I was adviced to read "Basic Mathematics" by Serge Lang. While I can read the book, and do most of the exercises, I struggle a lot with the "proofs". Should I go and do something like "Khan academy" precalculus, then come back to this book, or should I just tough it out, and finish the book?

If you choose your coefficients in an actual ring you can have even nicer behavior.
