Senior Lecturer Emeritus
F. Recio, MSc, Ph D

Mathematics is the study of shape, quantity, pattern and structure. It serves as a tool for our scientific understanding of the world. Knowledge of mathematics opens gateways to many different professions such as economics, finance, computing, engineering, or the natural sciences. Aside from practical considerations, mathematics can be a highly satisfying intellectual pursuit, with career opportunities in teaching and research.

The department counts many of Canada's leading research mathematicians among its faculty. Our mathematics programs are flexible, allowing students to select courses based on specialization and interest. Contents range from calculus and linear algebra in the non-specialist programs to more advanced topics such as real and complex analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations, differential geometry, topology, commutative algebra, graph theory, mathematical logic, number theory, and functional analysis.

 The department offers specialist programs in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics and Physics, and Mathematics and Philosophy. Students acquire an in-depth knowledge and expertise in mathematical reasoning and the language of mathematics, with its emphasis on rigor and precision. These programs are designed for students wishing to pursue graduate studies, and a large proportion of our graduates gains admission to the world’s best graduate schools.

 The program Mathematical Applications in Economics and Finance is designed to prepare students for direct entry into the world of finance. It can also serve as a gateway to an MBA or a Master of Finance degree, possibly followed by an eventual doctorate.

 The Mathematics and its Applications programs, with three areas of concentration (teaching, physical science, and probability/statistics) are designed as `enhanced double majors'. The required courses for these concentrations are almost identical for the first two years, but they diverge in the upper years.

 The Major and Minor programs are intended for students who want to combine mathematical skills with work in other subjects. Requirements for these programs are significantly less than for specialist programs, but still require the completion of some upper year mathematics courses.

 The Professional Experience Year program (PEY: see http://engineeringcareers.utoronto.ca/students/pey/ ) is available to eligible full-time Specialist students after their second year of study. The PEY program is an optional 12-16 month work term providing industrial experience. It gives students an opportunity to apply their skills in the context of a paid internship.

The Department of Mathematics offers optional introductory courses for incoming students to foster the development of mathematics skills.

PUMP (Preparing for University Mathematics Program) is a non-credit course designed for students who have not taken the appropriate high school mathematics prerequisites for university calculus and linear algebra. It equips students with the necessary background knowledge required to succeed in first year mathematics courses. PUMP may also be taken by individuals who wish to close any existing gap between high school math and University level math courses or anyone who wishes to review high school math before attempting University level math or other science courses.

 MAT138H1 (Introduction to Proofs) has been introduced into the curriculum as a preparation for MAT157Y1, MAT240H1, MAT247H1, MAT237Y1, and other proof-oriented advanced courses.  The course covers the reading and comprehension of mathematical statements, analyzing definitions and properties, formulation of arguments, and strategies for proofs. Students may register and complete this half credit course during the second semester in the summer term (July-August).

Visit http://www.math.toronto.edu/cms/potential-students-ug/ for up-to-date information on the availability of PUMP and MAT138H1.

MAT436H1    Introduction to Linear Operators[36L]

The course will survey the branch of mathematics developed (in its abstract form) primarily in the twentieth century and referred to variously as functional analysis, linear operators in Hilbert space, and operator algebras, among other names (for instance, more recently, to reflect the rapidly increasing scope of the subject, the phrase non-commutative geometry has been introduced).  The intention will be to discuss a number of the topics in Pedersen's textbook Analysis Now.  Students will be encouraged to lecture on some of the material, and also to work through some of the exercises in the textbook (or in the suggested reference books).

Prerequisite: 5.0 FCE from MAT, including MAT224H1/MAT247H1 and MAT237Y1/MAT257Y1.

MAT437H1    Topics in Operator Algebras: K-Theory and C* Algebras[36L]

The course will begin with a description of the method (K-theoretical in spirit) used by Murray and von Neumann to give a rough initial classification of von Neumann algebras (into types I, II, and III). It will centre around the relatively recent use of K-theory to study Bratteli's approximately finite-dimensional C*-algebras---both to classify them (a result that can be formulated and proved purely algebraically), and to prove that the class of these C*-algebras---what Bratteli called AF algebras---is closed under passing to extensions (a result that uses the Bott periodicity feature of K-theory). Students will be encouraged to prepare oral or written reports on various subjects related to the course, including basic theory and applications.
