Math 155: Designs and groups Handout #1 (25 January 2010): About Math 155 Topics Math 155 is an advanced undergraduate course in combinatorics focusing on combinatorial designs and their symmetry groups, as de- scribed in the Course Catalog and in more detail in the first lecture or two. Prerequisites We shall make considerable use of linear algebra; the home- work assignments and examinations will require you to write proofs. If you have not taken Math 25/55 or 121 and wish to take this course, see me soon. Later we shall use some basic facts about finite groups such as covered in the first half of Math 122. Textbook Cameron and van Lint: Designs, Graphs, Codes and their Links (London Math. Society, 1991, reprinted 1996), which should now be available for purchase at the Coop. The first eight chapters will be the source of most of our material on combinatorics. Office Hours, etc. My office is Room 335 of the Science Center (right

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
