This course aims to help you gain a physical understanding of the mathematics used in physics.
The syllabus and lecture notes will be continually revised. Please make sure you have the latest versions.
You are encouraged to collaborate with one or two other students of similar ability and submit a single joint homework with the names of all collaborators on it.
There will be two submissions for each homework. The teaching assistants will give detailed feedback on each submission.
The exam will be open book and open time (up to 8 hours).

Highly recommended. Gives precise and intuitive topological pictures of antisymmetric tensors and their algebra and calculus in three dimensions. Note that the notation used in this book is a compromise between traditional three dimensional vector calculus and the more fundamental tensor notation used in this course.
