### Teaching this semester

### MATH 1800. Multivariate Calculus

**Thomas Pietraho**

Multivariate calculus in two and three dimensions. Vectors and curves in two and three dimensions; partial and directional derivatives; the gradient; the chain rule in higher dimensions; double and triple integration; polar, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates; line integration; conservative vector fields; and Greenâ€™s theorem. An average of four to five hours of class meetings and computer laboratory sessions per week.

### MATH 3603. Advanced Analysis

**Thomas Pietraho**

Measure theory and integration with applications to probability and mathematical finance. Topics include Lebesgue measure and integral, measurable functions and random variables, convergence theorems, analysis of random processes including random walks and Brownian motion, and the Ito integral.

### Education
