"Point set topology, complex analysis, differential forms, the curvature of surfaces, the axiom of choice, Lebesgue integration, Fourier analysis, algorithms, and differential equations.... I found these sections to be the high points of the book. They were a sound introduction to material that some but not all graduate students will need."
Charles Ashbacher, School Science and Mathematics
Beginning graduate students in mathematics and other quantitative subjects are expected to have a daunting breadth of mathematical knowledge. This book will help readers to fill in the gaps in their preparation by presenting the basic points and a few key results of the most important undergraduate topics in mathematics: linear algebra, vector calculus, geometry, real analysis, algorithms, probability, set theory, and more. By emphasizing the intuitions behind the subject, the book makes it easy for students to quickly get a feel for the topics that they have missed and to prepare for more advanced courses.
