## Introduction

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, and 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 eight specialist programs in addition to the major and minor programs.

In the **Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics and Physics**, and **Mathematics and Philosophy **specialist programs, 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; most of the graduates of these programs continue on to graduate school with some of them gaining admission to the world’s best graduate schools.

The **Mathematical Applications in Economics and Finance** specialist program 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** specialist programs offer three areas of concentration: teaching, physical science, and probability/statistics. These specialist programs 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. Students in these programs can also continue on to graduate studies.

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

Students interested in becoming K-12 teachers should consider applying to the combined degree program --- a six-year program that leads to an Honours Bachelor of Science (HBSc) from the University of Toronto and a Master of Teaching (MT) from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE). The HBSc part of this program involves completing a Math Major, a Minor in Education and Society (offered by Victoria College) and a Minor in an area that would lead to a second "teachable" subject. Please see the Victoria College website for more information.

The Professional Experience Year Co-op Program is available to eligible full-time Specialist and Major students after their second or third year of study. The PEY Co-op 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 introductory courses for incoming students to foster the development of mathematics skills.

**PUMP Level 1 and PUMP Level 2 (Preparing for University Mathematics Program)**

**Both programs** are non-credit courses that equip students with the necessary background knowledge required to succeed in first year mathematics courses. The content for the courses may be viewed at http://www.math.toronto.edu/cms/undergraduate-program/current-students-ug/pump-courses-2/.

**PUMP Level 1** provides a quick math review during the months of July and August, for students who would like to take six weeks prior to the start of the first semester to practice pre-calculus math skills. During other terms, it is scheduled as a longer course, for students who have not taken the appropriate high school mathematics prerequisites for university calculus and linear algebra. This course is recommended for any student 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.

**PUMP Level 2**, is an Introduction to Proofs course. The curriculum provides background knowledge that is a preparation for MAT137Y1, 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. This course is recommended for any student who wish to add to their knowledge by joining the group of students who will commence their preparation for the more challenging concepts in the advance analytical programs, during the months of July and August.

Visit http://www.math.toronto.edu/cms/potential-students-ug/ for up-to-date information on the availability of PUMP Level 1 and PUMP Level 2.

If you have questions about the content of these courses, e-mail inquiries@math.utoronto.ca.

**Course Change Dates**

Some of the more advanced first- and second-year courses have "change dates" during the first few weeks of the academic year. The "change date" occurs after the general "add date" for courses and before the "drop date" for courses. For example, a student enrolled in MAT157Y1 can change their enrolment to MAT137Y1 or MAT135H1 at any time on or before the change date. For deadlines and further details, see http://www.math.toronto.edu/cms/change-dates.

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).

### MAT437H1 - K-Theory and C* Algebras

**Hours:**36L

The theory of operator algebras was begun by John von Neumann eighty years ago. In one of the most important innovations of this theory, von Neumann and Murray introduced a notion of equivalence of projections in a self-adjoint algebra (*-algebra) of Hilbert space operators that was compatible with addition of orthogonal projections (also in matrix algebras over the algebra), and so gave rise to an abelian semigroup, now referred to as the Murray-von Neumann semigroup.

Later, Grothendieck in geometry, Atiyah and Hirzebruch in topology, and Serre in the setting of arbitrary rings (pertinent for instance for number theory), considered similar constructions. The enveloping group of the semigroup considered in each of these settings is now referred to as the K-group (Grothendieck's terminology), or as the Grothendieck group.

Among the many indications of the depth of this construction was the discovery of Atiyah and Hirzebruch that Bott periodicity could be expressed in a simple way using the K-group. Also, Atiyah and Singer famously showed that K-theory was important in connection with the Fredholm index. Partly because of these developments, K-theory very soon became important again in the theory of operator algebras. (And in turn, operator algebras became increasingly important in other branches of mathematics.)

The purpose of this course is to give a general, elementary, introduction to the ideas of K-theory in the operator algebra context. (Very briefly, K-theory generalizes the notion of dimension of a vector space.)

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.

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

**Recommended Preparation:**Students are encouraged to execute basic research that answers the question, what is an abelian group?
