My own lecture note is posted on-line. No textbook from the market will be used.
The minimal requirement is the knowledge of multivariable calculus and linear algebra. More advanced knowledge from mathematical analysis also helps.

No hard copies of the homework will be distributed. Please check my web page for the latest assignments. Usually you have one week to do the homework. The answer will be put on my web page after the homework is collected. Absolutely no late homework will be accepted.
Exam and Grade
There will be NO midterm and one final exam. The homework is counted as 20% of the final grade and the exam is 80%.
The syllabus is subject to change as circumstances arise.
