# Presentation of 5th semester Autumn 2019 - Mathematics UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Welcome to the 5th semester.

On the first day of the semester, Tuesday the 3rd of September you meet at 10.00 in room 5.227 where Christophe Biscio and Jakob Gulddahl Rasmussen will present you with project proposals.

After this you form groups (approx. 13 project-writing students); group rooms will be allocated to you by the study secretary. NOTE that room 5.227 is only at your disposal until approx 12.00.** **Remember to deliver the filled-out group forms to the secretary before going home.

**Important: Information re. handling of keys for group rooms**

Course sessions will be entered into the Moodle Calendar. We aim at enrolling our students 'automatically' in the relevant courses within the Moodle system - however, as errors may occur we encourage you to check that you are enrolled. Note that you can always self-enroll in relevant courses, semester-room and project-room.

The course *Statistical Inference for Linear Models* is shared by all 5th semester students, i.e. Math, Math-Econ and Math-Tech. This also goes for the Mini-project in week 40.

Curriculums can be found via https:studieordninger.aau.dk *Please note that in Autum 2019 the course Computer Algebra has been replaced by the course in Optimization**.*

**Courses***To ensure that our students get identical books we have placed book orders for (STAT) and (OPT) according to the number of students with the university book shop, Fibigerstræde. So by semester start the literature mentioned below should be available at the book shop.Link to book shop: *

*Statistical Inference for Linear Models* (5 ECTS)(joint with MathEcon5 and MathTech5)**Lecturer**, Jakob Gulddahl Rasmussen

**Literature**: * Introduction to general and generalized linear models*, Henrik Madsen & Poul Thyregod. Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science (2010). ISBN: 978-1-4200-9155-7

*Differential Geometry* (5 ECTS)**Lecturer**, Martin Raussen

**Literature**: *Elementary differential geometry,* A. N. Pressley. (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series), (2010). ISBN: 978-1-84882-890-2

Available for the students (logged on to the university net) freely via SpringerLink:

https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/10.1007%2F978-1-84882-891-9.pdf

and so the book has **NOT **been ordered for the university book store

*Optimization* (5 ECTS)(joint with MathEcon5)**Lecturer**, Mikkel Meyer Andersen

**Literature**: *Numerical Optimization*, Jorge Noecedal and Stephen J. Wright. Springer, ISBN 9780387303031.

**Mini-project**The Mini-project will be introduced to you on the first day of the semester.
