**Slides of the course**

Below are the lectures of my course. I will go over many problems in class. It is essential that you spend time thinking about the problems posed in my slides, even if you can’t come up with a proof in the end. Extra points will be given to active students in class. In particular, one extra point will be added to the nearest homework if students can

– Volunteer to do an exercise on the blackboard (even if the solution is wrong, extra points would still be added since extra points are awarded based on the attitude of students)

– Point out a mistake of the instructor

– Answer an intelligent question of the instructor

– Ask the instructor an intelligent question
