1. INTRODUCTION

About your Departmental Handbook

This handbook is intended as a guide for all undergraduate students in the Department of

Mathematics, Kings College London, during the academic session 2010/11. It should be

your first point of reference should you need to know anything about the Department.

In this booklet you will find information about the Department, details of important

procedures which you will need to follow during the session, assessment information and

details of programmes and modules available in the Department.

We hope you find this handbook a useful accompaniment to your studies at Kings

College, and wish you an enjoyable and successful year.

History of the Department of Mathematics

Mathematics has been studied at King's throughout its history and the first Professor of

Mathematics was appointed in 1830. Since then the Mathematics Department has

established a record of accomplishments in central areas of pure mathematics and

physical applied mathematics. It achieved very high profiles in both Pure and Applied

Mathematics in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise and was well within the top

quartile nationally.

The Department provides degree programmes and modules for both undergraduate and

postgraduate degrees in mathematics. Its teaching programmes are influenced by the

research interests and activities of the staff.

The Department is a member of the School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences at

King's. The Departments of the School together provide a wide range of degree

programmes and modules in mathematics, informatics and physical sciences, from first

year to postgraduate level, and in a variety of modes from full- and part-time to continuing

education.

Mission Statement

The Colleges Mission Statement is:The College is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, learning and understanding in

the service of society. Since its foundation in 1829, King's has come to occupy a leading

position in higher education in the UK and to enjoy a world-wide reputation for teaching

and research. The College's objective is to build on this reputation and to have all its

research and teaching activities judged excellent by peer review. King's, in line with its

founding principles, will continue to foster the highest ethical standards in a compassionate

community. This all-embracing pursuit of excellence will touch every part of the College

and its constituencies:

Staff: The College will continue to appoint outstanding academic and support staff.

Training and staff development programmes will help staff to reach their full potential. A

continuous programme of improvement of all College facilities will underpin research of the

highest standard.

Students: King's will continue to encourage applications from students of all backgrounds,

selecting only on the grounds of academic merit and potential. Students will study in a

research environment which values scholarly enquiry and independence of thought and

will enjoy high levels of staff contact, free and open discussion, and flexible course

structures. All students will be encouraged to follow an additional course, the

Associateship of King's College, which further challenges them to think systematically

about their values and beliefs.

Location: The College's location in the heart of London brings special advantages and

responsibilities. King's will utilise its location to promote the exchange of ideas and skills

with government and the business community, the professions, the arts and the world of

education.

Society: The College, by capitalising on its position, will bring informed influence to bear on

national and international decision makers. It will also meet its obligations to society by

undertaking and disseminating the results of research, and by producing balanced and

well educated graduates.

other special arrangements be made simply because a student has made travel

arrangements which are within these semesters.

2. ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS

The Mathematics Departmental Office

The Departmental Office is open to students from 10.00am12.30pm and 14.30pm

16.30pm, Monday to Friday, except on Wednesdays when the office is closed for the

afternoon. The office is located on the 5th Floor, Strand Building, Room S5.01.

The School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences

The School of Natural and Mathematics Sciences comprises the Departments of

Informatics, Mathematics, Physics, the Division of Engineering (Electronic and

Mechanical) and the Centre for Bioinformatics. The Head of School is Mr Chris

Mottershead. Each Department or Division also has its own Head. Examination business

is co-ordinated by the Chair of Undergraduate Programme Boards (each Department has

its own Programme Board). The business of the Undergraduate Programme Boards is coordinated by the School Undergraduate Examination Board, which in turn reports to the

College Examination Board.

The Tutor System

Each student (whether single subject or joint honours) will be assigned a Personal Tutor in

the Mathematics Department. Personal Tutors are a primary point of contact between the

student and the College and, whenever possible, a student will have the same tutor

throughout his or her entire career. They can be consulted about academic, financial or

personal matters; where problems are serious, the tutor will help the student find more

specialised help. The Department looks to Personal Tutors for information about students,

for example, on attendance, examinations performance, other college activities, outside

interests and so on. Personal Tutors may speak on behalf of their Tutees on occasions

such as examiners meetings. At the end of their college careers students will want their

tutors to write testimonials and references supporting applications for employment or

further courses.

The Department places great importance on the tutorial system; its function depends

critically on students keeping in contact with their Personal Tutors. Students are entitled to

make appointments with their Personal Tutors, who can be seen at short notice in an

emergency. Students must make themselves known to their Personal Tutor on enrolment

day, and are strongly urged to keep in regular contact. You should be aware that there are

College regulations which state that if a member of College staff knows of any activity

which contravenes College regulations (e.g. drug abuse), they should report it to the

Academic Registrar. If you wish to discuss matters of a sensitive nature, you may find it

more appropriate to visit a College Counsellor, who will maintain confidentiality as far as

possible.

13

The Senior Tutor also plays a pastoral role for all students and may be approached

whenever students feel that it would be appropriate to do so. In exceptional circumstances

students are permitted to change their tutor by making a request to the Senior Tutor or, if

necessary, the Head of Department.

The Link-up System

Following recommendations from the Staff-Student Committee, a Link-up Scheme has

been established between incoming first and second year mathematics students, and

between second and third/fourth year students. The aims of the scheme are to make the

transition to university as smooth and enjoyable as possible for incoming students, and to

provide a network of contacts between first, second and third year students with the

purpose of providing academic and social advice. Further information about this scheme

will be circulated at the beginning of the academic year.

How we contact you

The most important means of communication is the College electronic mail network which

is frequently used for the dissemination of information to students and for communication

between students and their tutors. Students are required to check their e-mail on a

regular basis. The College email system can be accessed at all PAWS machines and via

the web. All new students will be automatically registered to use the system. Another

method of communication is via the Mathematics departmental notice boards, which are

situated near the Departmental Office on the fifth floor of the Strand Building.

If you have any correspondence for a member of staff, you should leave it with a member

of staff in the Departmental Office.

Each student is required to sign a form to indicate that they realise their responsibilities to

regularly check email sent to their College email address (which has the standard form

firstname.lastname@kcl.ac.uk) and to keep up with College/Departmental information via

the relevant web pages.

Each student is also required to supply term-time and home addresses. You can make

amendments to personal information yourself via OneSpace. A student is responsible for

the consequences of not receiving information conveyed by these means.

Attendance and absence

Students are of course normally expected to attend all lectures, tutorials and other classes

for all their modules. Absence is permissible under certain circumstances (such as illness)

but students are generally expected to attend as regularly as possible. [Regulation B4

4.1.2 is available via: www.kcl.ac.uk/about/governance/regulations/students.html.

Any student who is absent from College for 7 days or more because of illness, or for

some other reason, should keep her or his Personal Tutor informed of the

circumstances. Medical certificates should be handed in to the Departmental Office,

Room S5.01.

Information about medical and other difficulties is important when decisions are made

regarding progress to later years and eventually final degree classification. The information

is also significant in relation to coursework assignments and assessments which are

14

carried out during the course of the year. Overseas students under the new visa

requirements should be aware that the college must report any prolonged absences.

If the illness or other problem is of a confidential nature, the Personal Tutor, Senior Tutor

or some other staff member can keep detailed information privately, and will, on request,

give a note to be filed in the office stating the existence of the document, the implications it

has for the student's performance, and information as to which member of staff has charge

of the document. The actual document will then be seen only by those, such as external

examiners and the Chair of the Board of Examiners, who need the information to fully

assess a student's performance.

MathSoc

All Maths students are automatically members of MathSoc, which is a student run society

whose main aims are to organise social and academic activities throughout the year.

The main events are the summer boat party, Cumberland Lodge and for the first time, a

Christmas Party. Other subsidised events such as ice-skating and trips to Pizza Hut take

place throughout the year. Cumberland Lodge is a fantastic weekend away, which occurs

midway through the second semester; talks on the more appealing side of maths are

organised, and there is plenty of leisure time to enjoy Windsor Great Park.

Another purpose of MathSoc is to welcome the first years, and a parenting system is

arranged for the beginning of the year. A link-up party is organised for the last day of

registration. Here you will be able to chat informally with your fellow students, as well as

enjoy the free food and drink. You will also be given the opportunity to meet your

designated parents current students - who will be available to answer any questions

and offer advice on life in the Department.

Members of the MathSoc committee are usually available in Room S4.37, although they

can be contacted via email: the President; Roshni Sakaria (roshni.sakaria@kcl.ac.uk) the

Treasurer; Hina Varsani (hina.varsani@kcl.ac.uk) and the Social Secretary; Faris Ahmad

(ahmad.bin_ahmad_kabeer@kcl.ac.uk).

All students should be aware of basic safety procedures you will find a basic checklist at

the back of this booklet.

The Departmental Administrator acts as the Safety Officer. The Department has a Safety

Notice Board for the display of relevant notices. A list is displayed of First Aiders who

have been trained to give immediate medical help in the event of an accident. Whilst the

Health Centre (please see details under Advisory & Welfare Services) can help in these

circumstances, it is best to follow the advice of the First Aider and call an ambulance

should he/she consider this appropriate.

First Aid boxes are located in the Departmental Office as well as in the Undergraduate

Common Room, S4.37.

When it is necessary to evacuate a building in an emergency, bells will sound and you

should leave the building immediately by the nearest marked emergency exit. On

emerging from the building it is vital that you move right away from the building to provide

access for emergency vehicles and to allow others to leave quickly too. Provide an

example to others and follow the instructions of fire marshals.

If you are ever concerned about any aspect of safety or have suggestions to make, please

direct these to the Departmental Safety Officer on extension 2216. Further information

can be found on the College website: www.kcl.ac.uk/about/structure/admin/safety .

Staff/Student Liaison Committee

The Staff-Student Committee is the principal formal mechanism for feedback from

students to staff about all aspects of College life, particularly those directly related to the

Department. It also provides a forum for discussion on matters of common concern. It

has two calendared meetings every semester, but students can ask for a special meeting

at any time.

The student membership of the Committee consists of all officers of the undergraduate

Mathematics Society, together with a further seven elected representatives, consisting of

one single subject student and one joint honours student from each of the three years.

The current staff members include the Senior Tutor and the Head of Department.

Code of Conduct

The way you are taught at university may be very different to what you have experienced

before. You may be taught in a very large or very small group. You may be expected to

think quickly and follow complicated material at a pace you may find too fast - or too slow.

Overall, you will be given greater academic and personal freedom than you have

experienced before, and this can be bewildering at first. You will have to learn how to

organise your own time so that you get the most from your education.

However, there are still certain rules that have to be obeyed. You are required to attend

lectures and you will expect these to be well-prepared, logical, audible and correctly

paced. You can contribute to the success of lectures by following the guidelines shown

below:

Arrive in good time - late arrivals disrupt the rest of the class.

Turn off your mobile phone before the lecture starts. Never make or answer calls

during a lecture. Do not receive or send text messages. Do not use any other

electronic devices during a lecture without permission of the lecturer.

Do not talk when the lecturer is talking; only conversations and discussions expressly

permitted by the lecturer are allowed.

If you have a question for the lecturer, please attract his/her attention by raising your

hand.

Disruptive behaviour destroys learning and will not be tolerated by teachers. If they are

disturbed by disruptive or interfering behaviour, teachers have a right to ask offending

students to leave the lecture theatre or teaching room and to enquire of their name.

Students who commit misconduct on College premises are liable to the Colleges

Disciplinary Procedures

It is in the interest of the whole class and the lecturer that these guidelines are followed.

Please encourage others to follow them.

PLEASE THINK OF OTHERS AS WELL AS YOURSELF; HELP MAKE THE LECTURE A

SUCCESS FOR EVERYBODY.

21

Mathematics modules are almost all given either wholly in the first semester or wholly in

the second semester. Note, however, that second semester modules continue for the first

week of term following the Easter break. All exams for Mathematics modules for single

and joint honours Mathematics students are held in the Summer Exam Session in May,

with the exception of 4CCM111a (CM111A) which is examined in January. Joint Honours

students, in addition to the 4CCM111a (CM111A) examination, may find that they also

have examinations in January for some of their non-mathematics first semester modules.

The term after Easter (that is, the period from April to June) consists largely of

examinations. However, as noted above, the first week is used to complete second

semester modules, and the second week is normally devoted to revision, although

occasionally new material may be presented during this week full details will be found on

the course information sheet issued during the first lecture of each unit.

Lectures and Tutorials

Attendance at lectures and tutorials is compulsory. Listening to an exposition of a subject

developed in lectures is an important part of the process of learning mathematics.

Copying another student's notes is not a valid substitute. Tutorials are your opportunity to

clear up difficulties and consolidate your understanding, as well as to review the

assignment work. You cannot expect sympathy if you miss the tutorials and subsequently

need individual help for your difficulties.

It is recognised that occasional absences may be inevitable. However, in cases of

prolonged systematic absences, the students concerned may be excluded from the

examination on the grounds that they have not completed the course of study. If you are

absent because of illness or some other good cause, you should comply with the

procedures concerning such matters (see 'Matters regarding attendance and absence').

Extraneous noise and casual chatter can sometimes be a problem in lectures, particularly

if the class is large. It makes difficulties for the vast majority of students and is distracting

to the lecturer, resulting in a loss of quality in the lecture. (Conversely, interest and

attentiveness of a class can inspire the lecturer to an enhanced performance.) Students

are asked to ensure that lectures are not disrupted by extraneous noise. Mobile phones

must be switched off during lectures.

Walk-in Tutorials

These tutorials are for First Year students. The intention is to give students who are at the

beginning of their course the opportunity to have their difficulties sorted out in an informal

way. They can ask for any topic to be gone over at their own pace, and guidance will be

given on how to approach the problems on the weekly exercise sheets (although the

actual work set will not be done for you!) You are encouraged to make use of these

sessions to sort out anything you are having trouble with.

These tutorials are run by Mrs J Bennett-Rees and will take place on Wednesdays from

14.0017.00 in room 520 in semester one and two. You should aim to come early in the

session but only stay for as long as you wish.

22

Pop-In Tutorials

In addition to the Walk-in tutorials, the Department offers Pop-in tutorials for First Year

students.

Usually, there are two such tutorials per week, probably starting in the second week of

term and are conducted by a Final Year Mathematics student at Kings. (Students will be

notified of the days and times.) These tutorials are informal, and you are free to come and

go as you please. You may ask questions about any aspects of your First Year modules

which are troubling you, or which you are finding difficult, but please note that these Pop-in

tutorials are NOT intended as a forum for solving the problems on next weeks exercise

sheet! In the past many students have found these tutorials very helpful and you are

encouraged to avail yourself of this opportunity.

Students will be advised of times and rooms closer to the time.

Coursework

Mathematics is a subject that can only be mastered by relating the theory to applications

and examples. The Department of Mathematics attaches great importance to students in

all years attending the tutorial classes and handing in weekly assignments as well as going

to lectures. For all compulsory and core modules, attendance and assessment marks will

be recorded for each tutorial, and for these courses students will be required to attend a

minimum of 70% of the tutorials.

For all first year students additional coursework requirements are imposed, which are

intended to help in making the transition from school to university. Mathematics modules

normally taken by first year students have either an element of continuous assessment

counting towards the final result for the module, or a coursework requirement based on

weekly assignments done in the students' own time. The information sheet for a module

will indicate which of these methods is being used.

Any coursework requirement for a particular module will be specified on the Course

Information Sheet. In cases where the requirement is based on weekly assignments,

students are responsible for keeping marked assignments in case of possible appeals

concerning their standard, and are asked to make any enquiries about the marking at an

early stage. Coursework requirements may be waived for medical or other similar good

reason. You should keep your Personal Tutor informed about any problems.

The above requirements also apply to joint honours students taking Mathematics modules.

Regulations require that a student must complete a proper course of study before being

admitted to the summer examinations. The Department of Mathematics rules that, in

addition to attendance at lectures and tutorials, meeting a coursework requirement, as

appropriate for a module, forms part of the proper course of study. Students who do not

meet the coursework requirement will not normally be allowed to sit the Sessional

Examination for the module concerned.

All coursework tests, which count in the final assessment, are College examinations. The

way that they will count in the final assessment will be announced at the beginning of the

course and will have been agreed with the Chair of the Board of Examiners. There will be

no replacement or resit course tests. Failure to attend a test, except under special

circumstances, will normally be penalised. If there are extenuating circumstances,

23

medical certificates or other written evidence must be received by the Departmental Office

within 48 hours of the test. The condition for a bare pass is a pass on aggregate.

Does Coursework Count?

All students should read this section carefully especially First Year students. It is

important that all students, particularly First Year students, be aware of the fundamental

importance of sitting and performing well in all the Class Tests which will contribute to the

final mark for the module; these are discussed in more detail below.

Please note that Second Year students do not receive a coursework mark in

5CCM1xxxB modules; they are graded solely on the basis of the written

examination.

Class Test marks relate to First Year students taking Level 4 modules (4CCM1xxxA)

only.

Lecturers teaching First or Second Year modules set homework exercises week by week.

At Third and Fourth Year level exercises will also be set as a module progresses, but not

necessarily on a weekly basis. Making a serious attempt to do the set questions is a

crucial ingredient in developing your understanding of Mathematics; Mathematics is a

subject where one learns by doing. Although studying lecture notes is an important and

valuable activity you will never really discover whether or not you understand a topic until

you try to solve the weekly exercise problems. A sensible approach involves studying the

lecture, thinking about the definitions and theorems, trying to understand the proofs, and

so on. Then attempt some questions from the weekly exercise; at that point you may have

to return to your lecture notes, you may have to read the relevant part of a textbook, and

perhaps think more deeply about a definition or a theorem which you had previously

thought you understood.

For First and Second Year students your attempts at the exercises will be graded week by

week, and the results recorded; in a few modules these marks may contribute to your final

mark. For precise information you should study the Course Information sheet, distributed

by lecturers at the start of a module; the Course Information sheet is also available on the

module web-site. The primary factor in determining your mark for most modules will be

the mark you obtain in the written examination in May/June (but that in turn may be heavily

influenced by your attitude to exercise work throughout the year!).

However, many modules do have a coursework element and a coursework mark which

does contribute to your final mark. This is assigned on the basis of your performance in

class tests, or by some other method of assessment. In every case the mode of

assessment is described in the Course Information sheet; in particular, this will make clear

whether or not there are class tests, and the extent to which these contribute towards the

final mark for the module.

You should note that coursework marks only have relevance the first time round; if you

fail to pass a module at the first attempt and have to resit an examination, your mark in the

resit examination will be determined solely on the basis of the written paper and any

coursework mark will not be taken into account.

Class Tests in Year 1

In 2009/10 there will be a coursework mark for each First Year module, contributing 20%

towards the final mark for the course, the remaining 80% being secured on the basis of the

written examination which will be held in May/June. In the First Semester there will be four

24

Class Tests in each course (except for 4CCM111a/CM11A), conducted under examination

conditions; three of these tests will be held during the period in which the course is actually

taught, and a fourth test will be held in January 2009 during Examination Week.

In the Second Semester there will be three Class Tests, all being held during the period in

which the course is taught.

It is crucial that you sit all these tests; there will be no re-sit tests.

Information about the Class Tests, including the dates the tests will take place, can be

found on the web: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/schools/nms/maths/curr/ug/tests.html

The importance of working hard throughout the module, and sitting and performing well in

all the Class Tests, cannot be overestimated. The tests will be designed to gauge

whether or not you have mastered the basic concepts; although the questions will not be

trivial, neither will they be difficult. A student who works diligently should be able to

approach the January and May/June examinations secure in the knowledge that she/he is

well on the way to reaching the 40% pass mark.

Please note that if you fail an examination in January and/or May/June your mark in any

re-sit examination (taken in August or subsequent years) will be determined solely on the

basis of the written paper; coursework marks will not count. Marks obtained in August resit examinations are capped at 40%.

Monitoring of Progress

Your performance in class tests and homework will be monitored on a continuous basis.

Students whose progress is unsatisfactory will be required to attend a meeting with the

Senior Tutor.

Student Presentations

All Single Honours Mathematics students in Years 1, 2 and 3 will be required to give a

short presentation, once a year, on a mathematical topic. First Year presentations,

relating to a topic prescribed by the lecturer responsible, will normally take place in a

tutorial class, unless the lecturer decides that it is appropriate for the presentation to take

place at the start or end of his/her lecture, for example. In most cases students will be

asked to present their solution to a simple problem, to be assigned in advance by the

relevant lecturer. The presentation should last five minutes or a little longer.

Second and Third Year students will be invited to sign up to give a presentation in a

module of their choice although there will be a limit as to how many presentations may

take place in any one module; the sooner you sign up, the more likely you will be to be

able to give your presentation on your favourite subject!

Evaluation of Presentations

Your presentation will be graded as Excellent, Good, Satisfactory or Fail. These grades

will be recorded in your student file, and although they have no bearing on the class of

degree that you will receive, they could be important if you ask a member of the

Department to write a job reference on your behalf. The ability to express oneself clearly

is highly valued in todays world, and it is important to obtain some practice in the art of

verbal communication before you graduate from Kings. Presentations are a small step in

helping you to develop your skills in this area.

25

Workload

During term time you should expect to spend at least 40 hours per week on your studies.

Lectures and tutorials will normally take up 16 hours of your time, but you cannot expect to

follow your course successfully without several hours a week of additional work on each

module. It is particularly important that after each lecturing session you go through your

notes making sure that you understand the material, and that your notes are sufficiently

clear for you to be able to follow them when the lecture is no longer fresh in your memory.

If you are not on top of the material from the preceding lectures you will find subsequent

lectures hard to follow. It is also essential that you complete the assignments which are

set as the module progresses. If you do this you will find you have digested a useful

proportion of the material.

Most of the time, when one is learning mathematics, one is struggling to cope with material

that seems difficult. If you really are struggling, you will be learning more than you realise,

but if you are stuck, do not give up there are sources of help:

Other students on the course. While you must not copy assessed coursework whose

mark contributes towards the mark for the module, most assignments are set as

practice and collaboration is encouraged. Students helping each other is a two-way

benefit; the student who needs help is assisted while the giver of help usually discovers

that she/he understands the work better from having had to put it in her/his/ own words.

Tutorials, including the walk-in tutorials for first year students, provide an opportunity to

ask questions about any aspect of the course.

The course lecturers and helpers will have office hours when they are available for

consultation.

All project or essay work must be handed in to the Office by 4pm on the date which will be

specified at the beginning of the module. Normally two copies will be required and receipts

will be provided by the Office. Late work will not be accepted except under special

circumstances and it will normally receive a mark of zero. If the deadline is not met

written evidence of extenuating circumstances, such as medical certificates or other

written evidence, must be received by the Departmental Office within 48 hours of the

deadline.

6. EXAMINATION REGULATIONS

These instructions supplement the College Regulations. They do not replace the Colleges

Academic Regulations, Regulations Concerning Students & General Regulations and the

Schools Programme Specifications and Marking Scheme, which cover all aspects of your

degree programme in detail. You can find the College Regulations in the College Libraries

and on the web at:

www.kcl.ac.uk/about/governance/regulations

Our aim here is simply to help you to understand the way in which our exams are

organised, the options available to you, and the procedures that you must follow for

various eventualities. Please read this material carefully (and the College Academic

Regulations, Regulations Concerning Students & General Regulations if you have concern

on matters not covered here) and remember: Ignorance is no excuse for failure to

comply.

The School for Natural and Mathematical Sciences has produced a handbook for students

available at

www.kcl.ac.uk/schools/nms/current/handbook.html

It should be consulted for further information about several of the issues addressed below,

in particular those not specific to the Mathematics Department.

Registration for and Admission to Examinations

Registration for examinations has to be made online via OneSpace within the first two

weeks of the session for all subjects (whether taught in the first or second terms or both)

so that your entries can be registered in the College records. You will be notified of the

detailed arrangements near to the time. Compulsory subjects will be entered automatically

on your record but you must enter all optional subjects and resit examinations, even if you

are only to resubmit coursework. You will then receive a list of your examination entries

via OneSpace. It is YOUR responsibility to check your entry, to inform the

Assessment and Records Centre (ARC) if there are any errors or omissions, and to

meet all the relevant deadlines. The importance of doing this carefully cannot be

overstated. In this context it is of the utmost importance that you regularly study the

Urgent Notices Board opposite the Departmental office and read your e-mail on a daily

basis. It may be possible to amend your registration list at a later date if you wish to

change your choice of subjects, but (except in the case of a withdrawal under exceptional

circumstances, see below) this will not be possible after a prescribed date to be

announced early in the session. Any amendments should be approved by your Senior

Tutor and must be submitted in writing by completing a form available from ARC. Students

should be aware, that if, come the examination, it is found that they are not registered for

an examination there is no guarantee that they will be allowed to sit it and/or gain credit for

it. It should also be noted that admissions to an examination may be refused if, because

27

your attendance is deemed inadequate, the authorities are unable to complete the

certificate of attendance for the relevant subject.

Special Examinations Arrangements

If you have a learning or physical disability/condition (including pregnancy), and have not

already received concessions for the whole of your programme, you can apply to the

College's Special Examination Arrangements Committee (SEAC) for special examination

provisions in respect of written examinations.

Please note that if you are dyslexic (or believe you may be), you must provide a full

dyslexia assessment. This assessment must be conducted by a chartered educational

psychologist and show all your test results. It should also be dated within three years of

the date of your application to the SEAC. If you have a physical disability/condition, the

medical evidence must be detailed and recent - preferably written by a consultant.

Alternatively, an additional section of the application form can be completed.

Information regarding the closing dates for the submission of completed application forms

and supporting documentation, are available on the web. No arrangements will be

considered where the appropriate deadline has not been met, except in the case of

accidental injury or acute illness. An application form is available from the School Office or

on the web at: www.kcl.ac.uk/about/structure/admin/acservices/examinations/sea/

and must be returned to the Examinations Office. If special provision is granted, then it will

apply to one examination period only, and you will need to reapply for subsequent

examination periods if the disability persists.

Please note that special examination arrangements are do not automatically carry over to

class tests, which you may need to sit during the semester.

Attendance at Examinations

You must make every effort to attend your examinations. It is YOUR responsibility to

ascertain the time and place of all the examinations which you are sitting. Be sure

to check the FINAL timetable which is available via:

www.kcl.ac.uk/about/structure/admin/acservices/examinations/students

Absence from an examination, will count as a failed attempt, you will receive a mark of

zero. (See the section on Mitigating Circumstances below on what to do, if you fall

seriously ill.)

You must take a printout of your Examination Passport to all your examinations. It

lists all examinations for which you are registered and will be obtainable from OneSpace.

Note that you will normally not be permitted entry to any examinations for which you are

not registered.

When are degree examinations held?

All Mathematics examinations are examined at the end of the teaching year (with the

exception of 4CCM111a (CM111A) and 7CCMMS30 (CMMS30) and one or two ancillary

modules with degree or midsessional exams in January). The examination period itself

lasts for about a month and in the current session runs from Mon 9 May to Fri 3 June

2011.

28

Joint Honours students need to bear in mind that some departments (e.g. Computer

Science and Management Studies) examine their First Semester modules in January.

Examination Papers

At the end of each session, students are examined in the modules which they have taken

during that session. The common format is a two or three hour written exam.

The precise format of an examination paper is described in a so-called rubric which

appears on the front cover of the examination paper in question. The rubrics in most

common use are described below.

Rubrics

The Department's `standard rubric' for first-year examination papers in the Mathematics

Department runs as follows:

This paper consists of two sections, Section A and Section B.

Section A contributes half the total marks for the paper.

All questions in Section B carry equal marks. Answer all questions.

For second- and third-year exams the standard version is:

This paper consists of two sections, Section A and Section B.

Section A contributes half the total marks for the paper.

Answer all questions in Section A.

All questions in Section B carry equal marks, but if more than

two are attempted, then only the best two will count.

In such an exam students are advised to concentrate first on completing Section A. This

consists mainly of easier questions which should generally resemble exercises and/or

examples from the lecture. In order to obtain a high grade (as opposed to a pass) students

will also need to provide answers that are as full as possible to two questions from Section

B. These may require a little more thought and the rubric clearly encourages you to focus

your energy on at most two such questions.

Some exams may employ other, `non-standard' rubrics (because of the nature of the

material of the module, for example, or because the paper has several sections). In thirdand fourth-year exams this is particularly common. For instance, there may be a `nonstandard' rubric of the following form (with some value of N, which is often less than the

total number of questions on the paper):

Full marks will be awarded for complete answers to N questions.

Only the best N questions will count towards grades A or B, but credit will be given

for all work done for lower grades.

In all modules the lecturer will inform you of which rubric is to be used.

If coursework marks are included in the assessment of a module, then normally the

provisions of the rubric are applied before these are added in.

Calculators

For examinations in which the use of calculators is permitted, students are expected to

bring their own calculators. However, these calculators must be one of the two

following approved models CASIO-FX83xx, or CASIO-FX85xx. In these specifications,

29

xx stands for an arbitrary two-letter model specification (e.g. xx=ES). All such

specifications are allowed. Bringing a non-approved calculator to an exam will be regarded

as an examination offence!

Marking Procedures

All examination scripts are marked by a first examiner, who is normally the lecturer for the

module, and then by a second examiner. This is formally Model 2 as described in the

College Marking Framework The script may also be considered by an external examiner.

This will always happen, if the script turns out to be a borderline case.

The criteria for judging the quality of a script or project report are summarised in a set of

mark schemes which will be available, when finalised, on the NMS website at:

http://www.kcl.ac.uk/schools/nms/internal/pol/mark.html

Marking of BSc and MSci/MSc projects on the other hand basically follows Model 1 of the

College Marking Framework, in that two copies of the project report are marked separately

and independently by two examiners.

Mitigating Circumstances

Withdrawal from Examinations or Extension of Deadlines

The following notes are for guidance only. They address the question of what to do when

circumstances beyond your control would seriously affect your performance in one or

more examinations or prevent you from submitting an assessment by the deadline. Such

`mitigating circumstances' might include significant illnesses or accidents, or the death of a

close relative.

For details concerning rules governing mitigating circumstances, students are urged to

consult the student guidance supplied with the mitigating circumstances form (MCF). The

MCF

is

available

by

following

the

appropriate

link

on

www.kcl.ac.uk/about/governance/regulations/acregs.html

An overarching principle of the Colleges assessment policy is that if you present

yourself for an examination or submit an assessment, then by doing so you are

declaring yourself fit to take that examination or to undertake that assessment, and

therefore whatever mark you are awarded will stand. Only in very exceptional

circumstances will a mark awarded be annulled if you have sat the examination or

submitted the assessment.

For mitigating circumstances to be taken into account, you must complete a Mitigating

Circumstances Form (MCF) or an Extension Request Form (ERF). You may use these

forms to request (possibly retroactive) withdrawal from the examination(s) in question or

an extension to the deadline for the submission of an assessment. Alternatively, if you do

not wish to withdraw from the exams, you may ask for consideration (of the mitigating

circumstances). Please note however, that as of September 2005 it is no longer possible

for individual examination marks to be altered as a result of any such consideration, even if

granted by the board. It follows that consideration is only relevant (if granted at all) to the

board's decision in assigning the overall degree class, and this only in cases in which the

class as predicted by the C-Score or I-indicator (`Award of Honours' below) is very close

indeed to the borderline between classes. Consideration is therefore mostly of concern to

finalists (although in some circumstances it may, if granted, be carried over to the final

year).

30

MCF and ERF forms are available from ARC or the Examinations Office, and may also be

downloaded from the College Policy Zone:

http://www.kcl.ac.uk/college/policyzone/ (search term MCF)

They must be completed in full (incomplete forms will not be accepted) and submitted

directly to your Department along with all supporting documentary evidence. Until

supporting documentary evidence is provided, your form will not be passed to the relevant

board chair for consideration.

The case you need to make for withdrawal/extension must satisfy very strict criteria. These

criteria then depend crucially on when the MCF and complete documentation are

submitted:

If submitted at least 7 days before the start of the first examination from which you wish

to withdraw/the deadline for which you require extension, you must have serious

reasons beyond your control (not simply lack of preparation, or a minor ailment or

condition, or illness several months before the exam) which would either prevent you

from sitting the exam or which would make you unfit to sit it (or prevent you from

submitting the assessment in time). You must include full documentary evidence (e.g.

doctor's certificate) to prove that your mitigating circumstances are true.

In this case, it should be possible for you to receive a decision before the exam.

If less than 7 days before the first exam/the deadline (or after the exam/deadline) your

MCF1 will in addition need to show that you were unable, or for good reasons

unwilling, to request a withdrawal/extension before the 7-day deadline prior to the

examination. Good reasons would include the circumstances arising less than 7 days

before the examination, or if you were ill and in hospital up until 7 days before the

examination or deadline and therefore unable to submit your MCF. The circumstances

must also be severe enough to prevent you from attending and completing the exam

(even under special arrangements, see above). Your MCF must be submitted within 7

days of the missed examination.

In this case, because of the lack of time, a decision will only be reached after the

exam(s) at the next meeting of the relevant Board of Examiners. The Board also

reserves the right to offer you an alternative form of assessment. Only in exceptional

circumstances may you request to be retroactively withdrawn from an exam from which

you have actually sat. In this case, your MCF and accompanying evidence must be

submitted in advance of the meeting of the Board of Examiners at which the

results of your examination or assessment will be discussed. It must satisfy the

next meeting of the Board of Examiners not only of serious mitigating circumstances

which made you unfit to sit the exam but also why you were, for good reason, unable at

the time of the exam to recognise that you were unfit to sit it (e.g. due to the nature of

an illness).

If your withdrawal request is accepted, you will be withdrawn from the exam (if

retroactively, your mark will be ignored) and it will not count as an attempt. Except under

special conditions in which it is not appropriate (for example, if you are interrupting your

studies) you will be offered a replacement examination which you must normally take at

the first available opportunity. This might mean an August replacement (if a finalist, this

would normally mean that you would not graduate until the following January). However, it

1

Late extension requests must be submitted on a MCF not on an ERF.

31

might also mean that you are required to take the replacement the following year instead.

If an extension request is accepted, a new deadline for the submission of the assessment

in question will be set, or you will be permitted to negotiate a new deadline with the

assessment organiser.

If your withdrawal/extension request is rejected, you will not be allowed to withdraw/submit

the assessment after the deadline. In particular, if you do not attend (or have not attended)

the examination in question or submit the assessment after the deadline, a mark of zero

will be recorded.

Finally, you should note that relatively few requests for withdrawal and replacement are

granted. Only well-documented, serious circumstances are considered and they

must be unlikely to persist until the date of the replacement. You should read carefully

the criteria supplied with the MCF. You should also ensure that you inform the Senior

Tutor, your Personal Tutor or Programme Board Chair of your situation as soon as

possible.

Appeal against a decision of a Board of Examiners

If you wish to appeal against a decision of the Mathematics or School Board of Examiners

you are advised first of all to contact the Chair of the UG Mathematics Board to discuss the

situation. You should note in particular:

That you may not challenge a decision of the board on academic grounds (e.g.

because your assessment of your performance is different from theirs). In particular,

you may not simply ask for a `re-mark': Contrary to some students' belief, College

exam papers are never re-marked simply at a student's request.

That an appeal must meet very strict criteria before it is even considered. If, for

instance, it is based on mitigating circumstances, then you will need to show that there

is new information that, for good reason, could not be brought to the attention of

the board (e.g. via an MCF) before the Board made its original decision.

That any appeal and all relevant documentation must normally be submitted within 14

days of the publication of progression or degree results on the departmental notice

board or of the notification of individual exam results on OneSpace, whichever is

relevant

You should realise that few appeals are granted because of the strict criteria. However, if

after discussion and serious consideration you decide to submit an appeal, you will find full

details of the procedure at:

www.kcl.ac.uk/about/governance/regulations/acregs.html

Degree Titles

The title of your degree will normally be that of your field of study. Single subject students

may take some modules in (say) theoretical physics or computer science but provided that

at least 3/4 of the modules passed are in mathematics then the degree title will be

"Mathematics". For the precise rules concerning degree titles in single honours and in joint

honours (and or with degrees) please see Colleges Academic Regulations,

Regulations Concerning Students & General Regulations, under Field of Study

32

Pre-2007 Course Unit System: Kings College requires that for the award of a three-year

degree based on course units, a student should complete, and satisfy the examiners in

courses to the value of 9 units. For the four-year MSci degree, a minimum of 14 course

units is normally required. For further details see previous versions of this handbook,

available from the Departmental web site

Post-2007 Credit Framework System: For students starting their programme in 2007 or

later the minimum requirement is:

for a three-year BSc Degree: 360 credits, of which (i) at least 90 at level 6 or above, (ii)

at most 150 at level 4, and (iii) at most 45 credits are condoned fails.

for a four-year MSci Degree: 480 credits, of which (i) at least 120 at level 7, (ii) at most

150 at level 4, and (iii) at most 45 credits are condoned fails.

for the Graduate Diploma: 120 credits, of which (i) at least 90 at level 6 or above, at

most 30 at level 4, and (iii) at most 30 credits are condoned fails.

Condoned credits: For the BSc at most 45 at levels 4, 5, or 6. For the MSc at most 45 at

levels 4, 5, or 6, or 30 at levels 4, 5, or 6 plus 15 at level 7. In general, condoned fail

marks are between 33-39%, or 40-49% for level 7; for Mathematics modules, fails can be

condoned irrespectively of the mark obtained.) Note that condoned fails cannot contribute

to the minimum number of credits required at the highest level, nor to the minimum

number of credits required for progression.

Award of Honours

Assuming that these minimum requirements are met, you will be considered for award of

honours in one of the categories: First Class (1), Second Class Upper Division (2A),

Second Class Lower Division (2B), Third Class (3). The award of honours is a College

matter with procedures laid down in the College Regulations and the final decision on an

award rests with the College. Recommendations to the School Boards for award of

honours are made by the Board of Examiners in Mathematics for single subject students

and the appropriate BSc or BA Joint Honours Board for joint honours students. As noted

above (see Examination papers) visiting examiners from other London Colleges and other

Universities are appointed to membership of the Boards to monitor the standard. The

visiting examiners can see all the examination scripts, comment on the level of difficulty of

the papers and act as arbitrators in borderline cases.

The Boards make recommendations for award of honours on the basis of a full record of

all course-unit examinations taken by the student. A preliminary indicator is calculated

from the marks, but the Board decides each case on the basis of the students total

performance and may take special circumstances into account. All marks for course-unit

examinations (including coursework marks, if appropriate) are used in the calculation of

the guiding indicator.

Pre-2007 Course Unit System: For three year BSc degrees the first, second and third

year marks are weighted in the ratio 1:3:5. For four year MSci degrees, the marks for

each year are weighted in the ratio 1:3:5:5. Values of the indicator I in the ranges 100

I 70, 70 > I 60, 60 > I 50, and 50 > I 40 correspond to the classes 1, 2A, 2B and

3 respectively. However, in addition, a candidate for a first or upper second class degree

33

must pass relevant modules to the value of 1.5 units in the final year at or above the level

of honours being awarded. In this context language modules are not relevant.

A brief description as to how the indicator is calculated including a link to an online

calculator which allows you to perform these calculations automatically using a complete

set of real or hypothetical marks can be found at:

www.mth.kcl.ac.uk/~database/Database/Award.html.

The indicator formula will apply to almost all students of Mathematics, single and joint

honours, in the School of Physical Science and Engineering. Other formulae apply, for

instance to students who entered the College in their second or third year. Students

reading for the BA in Mathematics and Philosophy or the BA in Mathematics and French

are assessed for Honours in the School of Humanities Full details of the scheme for the

award of honours are to be found in the College Academic Regulations.

Post-2007 Credit Framework System: For students starting their program in 2007 or

later a so called C-score is calculated as a weighted average as follows

C = [mark x relevant credit volume x weight]/ [relevant credit volume x weight]

where for BSc degrees

The marks of the best 90 credits at level 6 (and/or level 7 where taken) have weight 5

The mark for any remaining level 6 credits and any level 5 credits have weight 3

The mark for all level 4 credits have weight 1.

The marks of the best 120 credits at level 7 have weight of 71

The marks for any remaining level 7 credits and all level 6 credits have weight 5

The marks of all level 5 credits have weight 3

The marks for all level 4 credits have weight 1.

and for the Graduate Diploma the weights are independent of level (meaning that a plain

average of your results is taken).

Values of the indicator C in the ranges 100 C 70, 70 > C 60, 60 > C 50, and 50

> C 40 correspond to the classes 1, 2A, 2B and 3 respectively.

It is important to understand that in either case the indicator is merely a guide to the

classification and the decisions are not made mechanically. The Boards have discretion

which is exercised with great care to recommend just awards. However, for a student

below but close to a degree boundary to be raised to the next higher degree level, a

minimum requirement is that at least 45 credits in the final year have been obtained at or

above the higher level.

Examination Results

Final degree classifications and progression lists will be displayed on OneSpace as soon

as possible after the meetings of the Programme and School Boards of Examiners. In the

2010/11 session this should be around July 7, 2011 or soon thereafter. Staff are

precluded by College rules from disclosing marks or literal grades. Complete details

of your results will normally be mailed to you in late July by the School Office, so please do

For students starting their programme 2009/10 or later; for those starting their programme prior to

2009/10 the weight of the best 120 credits at level 7 is 5 instead of 7.

34

NOT contact the College asking to be told your results over the telephone; Data Protection

restrictions do not permit staff to tell you your results in this way.

College Debtors and Release of Examination Results

The College is dependent on all students meeting their obligations in respect of fees at the

proper time, i.e. on receipt of an invoice from the Accounts Department.

Under no circumstances will students have their results released (nor will they be able to

obtain references from members of staff) if they have unpaid debts in respect of tuition or

hall fees, or if they have any library books still on loan. Be warned: every year some

finalists have the upsetting experience of discovering that their names have been omitted

from the Honours List because they have defaulted in this area. A student who is in debt

to the College should note that even after a debt has been discharged, several weeks may

elapse before the necessary administrative procedures can be completed and the

students results finally disclosed.

August Resits

Pre-2007 Course Unit System: Please refer to previous versions of this handbook,

available from the Departmental website at:

www.kcl.ac.uk/schools/nms/maths/curr/ug/

Post-2007 Credit Framework System: For students starting their programme in 2007 or

later, all examinations failed in January or May/June must be resat at the earliest available

opportunity, which is the August examination period of the same year. Resit examinations

under the New Credit Framework System are always capped at the pass mark (40% at

levels 4, 5, and 6, and 50% at level 7), irrespectively of whether they are taken as 2nd

attempt in August or (as possibly 3rd attempt) in the following year; they are normally

based entirely on the exam excluding any existing coursework.

Progression & Resits

Progression Criteria (BSc and MSci)

Year 1 - Year 2

- Must have passed all 4. c.u. (SH), or at least 3 c.u., all maths modules and any

requirements of sister department (JH), if starting course after Sept 2004 & prior to Sept

2007.

- Must gain an average mark of at least 40% in level 4 mathematics modules, with

no mark lower than 33% and 90 credits (excluding condoned fails) passed overall (SH),

and any requirements of sister department (JH and Math with ... programmes), if starting

course after Sept 2007.

Year 2 - Year 3

- Must have passed a minimum of 3 2nd year c.u. (SH), a total of 6 c.u (JH), if

starting course after Sept 2004 & prior to Sept 2007.

- Must have obtained 210 credits (excluding condoned fails), if starting course after

Sept 2007.

- Must have passed a minimum of 7 c.u. (MSci), and overall performance in 2nd year

with average mark > 59%

35

- Must have obtained 210 credits (excluding condoned fails) and good second class

performance in Year 2 (MSci) [guideline: an average of at least 65 % on the best 105

credits at level 5].

Otherwise demote to BSc, and progress if possible.

Year 3 - Year 4 (MSci.)

- Must have passed a minimum of 10 c.u. (MSci) and overall performance in first 3

years giving I > 59%, and not on significant downward trend.

- Must have obtained 330 credits (excluding condoned fails) and an overall

performance approaching IIa level [guideline: 3-year C > 59 and trend not significantly

downwards]. For JH, other departments opinion should also be sought. Otherwise

demote to BSc. and consider for honours.

Progression (Graduate Diploma, PT)

Year 1 - Year 2

- Part time students should normally obtain 60 credits (excluding condoned fails), i.e.

passes in all 4 modules for which they are registered in their first year.

- Part time students may, at the discretion of the Board of Examiners, be allowed to

progress to second year also if they fall short of the normal requirement.

This

will

normally require students to obtain at least 45 credits (excluding condoned fails), i.e.

passes in 3 modules, and the Board will base its decision on whether the candidate has a

reasonable chance of successfully completing the programme.

If in September, students have failed to meet the progression criteria, they will be

required to retake, in the following year, all papers which they have failed.

Under the pre-2007 Course Unit System, examinations sat the following year are

uncapped (unlike August resits), whereas under the new post-2007 Credit Framework

System all resits, whether August resits or exams sat the following year, will be capped.

In Mathematics all resit marks are based on the written paper alone, discounting any

existing coursework mark.

However, even if students do meet the progression criteria, the College Regulations

allow them to resit failed examinations. First year modules and compulsory modules in the

second year are important constituents of the degree and students are normally expected

to resit any such modules which they fail; students may also resit other failed modules and

this is usually advisable. The College Regulations require that all resits must be taken at

the first available opportunity, otherwise the right to a resit may be forfeited.

Consequently re-entry for a failed examination must be made in the following year.

Moreover, students may be allowed to re-sit a particular examination at most twice

(making 3 attempts in all, including any August re-sits) but this is subject to the approval of

the Chair of the School Board of Examiners, acting on the recommendations of the Board

of Examiners in Mathematics, and it should not be assumed that a total of three attempts

is guaranteed.

If students have an un-condonable fail in a module after their third attempt, their degree

programme will have to be terminated (despite the fact that they may still formally satisfy

normal progression criteria).

Students who contemplate withdrawing from a degree programme before its completion,

because they feel they might not be up for it, should note that the timing of their withdrawal

36

could affect their eligibility for funding of another degree programme. Further information is

available from King's compass (Tel: 020 7848 7070, www.kcl.ac.uk/thecompass.

What should I do if I cannot progress?

If, following the May/June or August examinations, you find that you have not qualified for

admission to the next year of the course, you are strongly advised to contact your

Personal Tutor or the Senior Tutor as soon as possible in order to discuss your position

and talk over future plans. Far too few students come to discuss their failure with

members of staff, all of whom are ready and willing to help where they can, and some

students probably give up quite unnecessarily for want of freely available advice at the

right time.

Please note the following: If you are resitting exams from outside College, it is your

responsibility to register for resit examinations with ARC (see Registration for

Examinations above). It is also your responsibility, in the case of a re-sit, to contact the

current lecturer to check for any change either in content or the style of the examination. If

you have passed an examination, you are NOT allowed to retake it to improve your mark.

If you fail both an exam and all the resits for a particular module, the highest mark will be

the one entered into the indicator calculation (see above).

Overseas Examinations

Resits and replacement examinations may be sat at a British Council (or similar approved

institution) office overseas. If you wish to sit these examinations overseas then you should

complete an Application for Special Examination Arrangements for Written Examinations

available from the Examinations Office, email: exams.office@kcl.ac.uk or on the web at

www.kcl.ac.uk/about/structure/admin/acservices/examinations/sea/

Deadlines for applications are published on this site, and must be adhered to.

Special rules pertaining to MSci students

Students registered for the MSci in Mathematics will be assessed at the end of their

Second Year of study. Those who have passed modules to the value of 210 credits (7

course units in pre-2007 currency) and whose overall performance in the second year is of

good second-class standard (normally interpreted as meaning an average mark of at least

60%) may continue in the MSci programme if they wish to do so. Students who do not

continue in the MSci programme transfer to the BSc programme, complete their studies,

and are assessed for Honours after one more year. In order to progress from the third to

the final year of the MSci programme, a student must have passed at least 330 credits (10

course-units), and an overall performance approaching the Upper Second Class level is

normally required. This is understood to imply that the student has an indicator I (based on

the marks for the first three years) in excess of 59, and that the trend of the students

marks in the third year is not significantly downward. Similar considerations apply to Joint

Honours MSci Students whose progression will be determined in consultation with the

other department. Students who do not meet these requirements will be automatically

transferred to the BSc programme and considered for Honours and graduation, by the

Board of Examiners, at the end of their third year.

37

BSc/MSci transfers

Transferring `up': Transfer from the BSc to the MSci will, with the approval of the

Programme Director for the Fourth Year MSci Programme and the School of Natural and

Mathematical Sciences, be possible up to 31 March of the third year of full time study (or

its part time equivalent), subject to respective curricula, provided they reach the required

standard at the end of their second and/or third year (see MSci progression above).

You should bear in mind that you must keep your Local Education Authority / Student Loan

Company informed of any changes in your degree programme, or your funding may be

terminated.

Transferring `down': Transfer from the MSci to the BSc may, with the approval of the

Senior Tutor and the School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, be possible at any

time up to the end of the third year of full time study, or its part time equivalent, again

subject to respective curricula.

All your own work?

The College regards the following types of behaviour as serious disciplinary

offences for which severe penalties can be applied. It is important that, as a

student, you understand that cheating, collusion, fabrication and plagiarism, as

defined below, are unacceptable; furthermore, they will not help your learning in the

long term.

Cheating

Includes: communicating with any other student in an examination

copying from any other student in an examination

bringing any unauthorised material into the examination room with the intention of using

it during the examination

copying coursework

Collusion

Includes:collaborating with other students in preparing a piece of work and the submitting it in an

identical or similar form and claiming it to be your own

obtaining unauthorised co-operation of any other person when preparing work which

you present as being your own

allowing someone to copy your work which they then present as being their own

Fabrication

Refers to research or experimental work, when unjustifiable claims are made to have

obtained certain results.

Plagiarism

Includes:-

38

quoting someone word for word or summarising what they say without acknowledging

them in a reference.

You are reminded that all work submitted as part of the requirements for any examination

of the University of London (of which Kings College is a part) must be expressed in your

own words and incorporate your own ideas and judgements. Plagiarism must be avoided

in examination scripts but particular care should also be taken in coursework, essays and

reports. Direct quotations from published or unpublished works of others (including lecture

hand-outs) must always be clearly identified as such by being placed inside quotation

marks and a full reference to their source must be provided in the proper form. A series of

short quotations from several different sources, if not clearly identified as such, constitutes

plagiarism just as much as does a single unacknowledged long quotation from a general

source. Paraphrasing expressing another persons ideas or judgements in other words

can be plagiarism if the origin of the text is not acknowledged or the work paraphrased is

not included in the bibliography. Also counted as plagiarism is the repetition of your own

work, if the fact that the work has been or is to be presented elsewhere (especially if it has

already been presented for assessment) is not clearly stated.

Plagiarism is a serious examination offence. An allegation of plagiarism or any other

form of cheating can result in action being taken under the Colleges Misconduct

regulations available from

www.kcl.ac.uk/about/governance/regulations/students.html.

A substantiated charge of plagiarism will result in a penalty being ordered ranging from a

mark of zero for the assessed work to expulsion from the College.

You will be asked to sign the College Plagiarism Statement saying that you understand

what plagiarism is.

39

7. PROGRAMMES OF STUDY

Students in the Department of Mathematics are classified as either single subject or joint

honours students. The following fields of study are available.

Single subject honours

Mathematics

Mathematics with Management and Finance

Graduate Diploma

Joint honours

In the School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences:

Mathematics and Computer Science

Mathematics and Physics

Mathematics and Physics with Astrophysics

In the School of Humanities:

Mathematics and Philosophy

Changing from one field of study to another may be possible but only with the approval of

all departments involved.

Set out below are the normal programmes for each year of each field of study. The aim of

the Department is to provide as much flexibility as possible in the choice of modules, but it

has been found in practice that this can only be achieved in the later years by restricting

the first year choice.

There is a Programme Director for each year of each field of study. Students should

discuss their programme with the appropriate Programme Director, who must approve the

programme and any subsequent changes. Some modules have prerequisites, which

should be discussed with the Programme Director. As a general rule, students who fail a

compulsory module are required to resit the examination.

Please note: As of 2005/06 the word `core', as applied to all Mathematics modules, is

used in this handbook to mean `has to be taken AND has to be passed' In the same

context, `compulsory' will be used to mean only that the module `has to be taken'. For

core modules in other disciplines, students are advised to refer to the appropriate

department for clarification.

Mathematics BSc/MSci

BSc programme: UCAS Code: G100 Route Code: UBSH3CSMM;

MSci programme: UCAS Code: G103 Route Code: UMSH4CSMM

Single subject Mathematics students are registered either for the BSc degree or the MSci

degree. The BSc in Mathematics is a three-year programme, whilst the MSci in

Mathematics is a four-year programme. All students take official examinations, mostly at

the end of each year. The BSc and MSci programmes are the same for the first two years.

All information in this booklet about first and second year single subject Mathematics

applies to both programmes.

Please note that the module codes in parentheses are those applying to students who

entered the College prior to 2007.

They may also choose to take a language module at credit level 5 or higher, normally

from the KCL language unit, subject to the approval of the Programme Director. Note

however, that under the course unit system, a pass in a language module, although

counting towards your indicator, does not contribute to satisfying the requirement that in

order to obtain a First or Upper Second class degree a candidate must pass at least 3

modules at the level at which the degree is awarded.

Students may, subject to the approval of the Programme Director, also take up to two

modules at other colleges of the University of London or at Imperial College.

There is a compulsory Project Option 7CCM461a (CM461C), which all students are

required to take, and a choice of optional modules. In addition to the optional modules

given below, students may also take suitable third year modules subject to the approval of

the Programme Director.

All fourth year MSci students are required to complete a project on a mathematical topic.

This involves writing a report of between 5,000 and 10,000 words, giving an informal

seminar to staff and fellow students and producing a poster. The project counts as 30

credits (a full unit), which makes it a very important part of the final year.

Each student will have a supervisor; their task is to advise not direct the project, but

students are advised to show them a draft of the report at an early stage. Students must

complete a form stating the topic and provisional title of the project which must be signed

by the supervisor and returned to the projects co-ordinator, Dr Nikolay Gromov, by

Monday 11 October 2010. The deadline for submission of projects is Wednesday 23

March 2011.

Students may, subject to the approval of the Programme Director, also take up to two

modules at other colleges of the University of London or at Imperial College.

NOTE: a student may not enrol on a module that the student has already taken and

passed at either undergraduate or postgraduate level. Neither may a student enrol for a

module that overlaps with another module that the student has already taken and passed.

Modules will be deemed to overlap if both the content and the level of complexity are

similar.

49

In a joint honours course the student's time is divided more or less equally between the

two main subjects. Nevertheless, there is scope for flexibility to take account of individual

preferences and developing interests and abilities. There is in fact the opportunity in later

years to adjust the distribution of modules so that more time is devoted to one subject than

the other. Constraints of the timetable must obviously be borne in mind and, in any case, it

is crucial that the appropriate Programme Director be consulted.

The majority of Mathematics modules taken by Joint Honours students are the same as

the ones taken by Single Subject mathematicians. However, some modules have been

devised with the special needs of the Joint Honours student in mind.

The responsibility for non-mathematics modules rests with the relevant department.

They may make changes which are not reflected in this booklet, and you must

consult their booklet and/or programme director for definitive information.

First and Second semester:

Students must take 4 modules (or 60 credits) from the following list:

Dissertation (30 credits)

Arabic Philosophy

Hellenistic Philosophy

Indian Philosophy

Kant

Mediaeval Philosophy

Logic and Set Theory

Neoplatonism

Philosophy of Psychology

Philosophy of Religion

Philosophy of Science

Pre-Socratics

Reading in Aristotle

Reading in Plato

Topics in Philosophy of Language

Topics in Philosophy of Mind

And other modules in Philosophy, subject to the approval of the relevant Programme

Director in the Philosophy Department.

The responsibility for non-mathematics modules rests with the relevant department.

They may make changes which are not reflected in this booklet, and you must

consult their booklet and/or programme director for definitive information.

71

Students arrive at King's College having given much thought to their choice of course.

Likewise, in admitting students to a particular course, the College goes to some

considerable lengths to ensure that they are suitably qualified. There is, therefore, a high

degree of commitment on both sides.

However, we do realise that inclinations and interests sometimes change, and if you feel

that you would be better suited to a different course you should not delay in seeking advice

and finding out if a change is allowable. As a rule, note that changes of courses are the

more difficult the more material you have missed from your new programme. In the

Department of Mathematics, first year students in their first term should see the

Admissions Tutor (Dr D Solomon). After the first term, the appropriate person is the

Programme Director for the proposed course. Your personal tutor should in any case be

consulted.

A change of degree course requires written permission from all departments involved and

is not automatic. A Change of Registration Status form is available online. The form will be

signed on behalf of the Mathematics Department by the Senior Tutor, and should then be

returned to the Compass. Similar arrangements apply to temporary interruption or

permanent withdrawal. The College will inform your Local Education Authority about any

change in your course of study, but you are also required to write to your LEA.

This part of the handbook gives a provisional list of modules, which may be modified

before the session begins. Be reminded that you should always consult your Programme

Director about prerequisites for the modules and your intended programme.

Please remember that you may and should consult members of staff; this includes

consultation by students who are not attending the particular staff member's module. The

names of staff members willing to help with each module will be publicised on

departmental notice boards and given on the information sheet for the course.

At the start of each module, the lecturer will hand out a Course Information Sheet, which

includes more detailed information about the module.

Semester:

First

Teaching arrangements: Three hours of lectures each week, one tutorial per week,

throughout the term; one hour of maple tutorial for half the term.

Prerequisites: A-level mathematics

Assessment: The module is assessed by several 30-minute class tests held at intervals

during the First Semester, together with a two-hour written examination in January; there

are NO resit class tests. The class tests together contribute 20% towards the final mark

and the written examination in January generates the remaining 80%; the overall pass

mark is 40%.

Assignments: Exercises will be given out and questions set each week to be handed in

the following week. These problems will be discussed in the tutorials and solutions will be

available on the web. In addition, the Maple tutorials will proceed via a series of computerbased exercises; these are assessed for satisfactory completion directly in the Maple

tutorials.

A full statement of the regulations for tests and assignments will be handed out in

lectures at the start of term.

Aims and objectives: The aim of the module is to review and enhance aspects of preuniversity mathematics in order to foster genuine confidence and fluency with the material.

This will help provide a firm grasp of basic ideas thus allowing concentration on the many

new and often abstract concepts that will be introduced in various modules throughout the

academic programme.

Syllabus: Complex numbers; trigonometric functions; the logarithm and exponential

functions; limits; review of differentiation; integration; series; Taylor's theorem; use of

Maple.

Books: This module does not follow any particular book but printed skeleton notes will

be made available. These will need to be filled in during lectures with proofs, examples etc.

In addition, there are many books which you might find helpful for the module-to provide

background, alternative explanations, and generally supplement the lectures.

The typical US-style introductory Calculus book has on the order of 1000 pages, is rather

heavy to carry around, and goes a long way beyond this module (but will not necessarily

cover all the material either). Having said that, such books can be very well written and

also useful for Calculus II next semester, and also possibly for Analysis I or Joint Honours

Analysis. There are any number to choose from, mostly located in section QA303 in the

library - not a bad example being

73

Calculus (one and several variables) by Salas, Hille and Etgen, Wiley (10th edition, 2007,

or earlier editions).

Less typical is:

Maths - A Student's Survival Guide, Jenny Olive, CUP

which is written in a very `chatty' style. It is intended for `science' students, rather than

mathematics students, and so in parts it is rather basic, as well as missing out some of the

more advanced topics, but it has well written sections on most of the material covered in

this module.

Finally, a book which might also prove useful is:

Engineering Mathematics by K.A. Stroud, Palgrave 2001

Again this is not intended for mathematics students, but covers almost all the topics in the

module in a very straightforward and clear way with many worked examples, and might

prove useful if you find the other books too technical or need to see more examples.

Maple: Maple is a very versatile and powerful computer package for performing

mathematical calculations, from the simplest all the way to research level. As part of this

module students must attend compulsory laboratory sessions designed to introduce them

to aspects of Maple. The times of the various sessions will be displayed on the notice

board and the module web page.

Semester:

Second

Teaching arrangements: Three hours of lectures each week, together with a one-hour

tutorial.

Prerequisites: 4CCM111a (CM111A) Calculus I, or equivalent.

Assessment: There are three assessments during the semester, which count for 20% of

the final mark. The remaining 80% of the course marks are assessed by a two-hour written

examination at the end of the academic year.

Assignments: There are exercises included in the course notes and you will be set a

selection of questions each week. Some of these are for group work in a tutorial, some for

homework. All students are expected to hand in their homework by a set date for marking

and discussion at a subsequent tutorial.

Aims and objectives: The course aims to extend the methods of calculus of one variable

to calculus for functions of many variables, that is, calculus on higher dimensional spaces.

This involves concepts such as multiple integrals and partial derivatives, which enable us

to make sense of the idea of length of a curve, area of a surface, and maxima and minima

of functions of many variables. The final part of the course presents the great integral

theorems: Greens Theorem, Stokes theorem and the Divergence Theorem which form a

cornerstone of mathematics.

Syllabus: Surface sketching, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, geometry of curves,

vector fields, geometry of surfaces, maxima and minima, generalised derivatives, Stokes

Theorem, the Divergence Theorem.

Books: The Course Notes will be available at the start of the semester. There are many

texts on this subject, and you might take a look at the following:

R Adams, Calculus, a complete course (6th Edition) this includes sections on calculus

using Maple

J Marsden, A Tromba, Vector Calculus (4th Edition)

Salas and Hille, Calculus: one and several variables (6th Edition)

McCallum et al., Multivariable Calculus

W Cox, Vector Calculus

You may also want to look at the worked problems in the following Schaum outline books

by Murray Spiegel:

Schaum's Outline of Theory and Problems of Advanced Calculus

Schaum's Outline of Theory and Problems of Vector Analysis

75

Lecturer:

Dr PL Kassaei

Semester:

First

tutorial each week (beginning Week 2) to discuss Homework exercises from the previous

week.

Pre-requisites: A-level Mathematics (algebra, trigonometry, geometry and calculus).

Assessment: There are three tests during the semester, with the fourth one in January, all

of which comprise 20% of the final mark. The remaining 80% of the course marks are

assessed by a two-hour written examination at the end of the academic year.

Assignments: There will be a weekly sheet of Homework exercises. You must attempt

these to keep up with the course. Solutions are later posted on the web page.

Aims and objectives: Linear algebra provides basic ideas and tools for much of the work

we do in mathematics, particularly the aspects which concern geometry in 3D Euclidean

space. The course introduces the general notion of linearity, a principle which illuminates

wide areas of Mathematics. In pursuit of this, we cover a range of topics and provide a

unifying framework for them.

Syllabus:

1. Algebra and geometry of vectors in R2, R3 and Rn.

Lines and planes, linear

independence and bases.

2. Matrices, systems of linear equations and linear maps, inverse matrices.

3. Determinants; the cross product for vectors in R3.

4. Eigenvalues & eigenvectors; similarity; complex matrices; canonical forms for rank 2

matrices.

5. Linear ordinary differential equations; solutions, principle of linearity, linear systems.

Coursework: Homework exercises and occasional class tests.

Course Notes: There is a set of lecture notes for this course, containing all the material to

be covered in lectures. They will be available from the departmental office.

Other Reference Texts. In addition, many textbooks in the library cover some or all of the

course, including:

[1] H. Anton and C. Rorres, Elementary Linear Algebra with Applications (J.Wiley).

[2] F. Ayres, Linear Algebra, Schaum Outline Series (McGraw-Hill). Many worked

problems.

Semester:

Second

Teaching arrangements:

Three hours of lectures will be held each week. The classes will be divided in five for

tutorials. Tutorial groups will be allocated in the first week of term and the lists will be

posted on the course web page.

Prerequisites:

Normally CM111A Calculus I, and CM113A Linear Methods

Assessment:

4CCM131A: There are three tests during the semester, which count for 20% of the final

mark. The remaining 80% of the course marks are assessed by a two-hour written

examination at the end of the academic year.

5CCM131B: There is a two-hour written examination at the end of the academic year,

which represents 100% of the final grade of this module.

Assignments:

Exercise sheets will be given out. Solutions handed in will be marked and difficulties

discussed during tutorials and in class. Assignments are regarded as an essential element

of the course as they provide the necessary opportunity for active training and for

sharpening ideas about the material presented in the course.

Aims and objectives:

The course aims to introduce students to the analysis of simple dynamical systems

described in terms of first or second order differential equations, emphasising concepts

such as phase flow, fixed points, and stability of fixed points. The ideas introduced have

applications in biology and economics, as well as in Newtonian mechanics. Newtonian

mechanics is taught with emphasis on motion in one spatial dimension, and in that case

furnishes examples of so-called second order dynamical systems. Elements of the

Hamiltonian approach to Newtonian mechanics are also introduced.

Syllabus:

Differential equations; first-order dynamical systems, autonomous systems, phase flow

and fixed points; second-order dynamical systems, phase flow, classification of fixed

points; kinematics of particle motion, Newton's laws; conservation of energy, conservative

forces, motion on a straight line; Hamiltonian systems; elements of Hamiltonian

mechanics.

Semester:

Second

Teaching arrangements:

Three hours of lectures each week, and a weekly tutorial of one hour.

Prerequisites:

None, but the module is a prerequisite for more advanced probability and statistics

modules such as Probability and Statistics II.

Aim:

The aim of the module is to introduce the basic concepts and computations of probability

theory as well as the statistical analysis of data and the main statistical tests.

Syllabus:

Elementary combinatorial analysis, Definition of probability, Unions and intersections Statistical Independence, Exclusivity and exhaustibility, Conditional probability, Bayes

theorem, Random variables discrete and continuous, The binomial distribution, the

Poisson distribution, the normal distribution, Descriptive Statistics, Correlation and

regression, Hypothesis tests, confidence intervals, Normal, Students t, Chi squared, Sign,

Mann Whitney and Wilcoxon tests

Reading:

A good textbook that covers all the material of the module, and which is also used in the

more advanced Probability and Statistics II is

Wackerley, Mendenhall & Scheaffer, Mathematical Statistics with Applications.

One highly recommended collection of tables which you will find useful in this module

D.V. Lindley and W.F. Scott, New Cambridge Statistical Table, Second Edition (Cambridge

University Press.)

Assessment:

The current arrangement is 3 class tests (together contributing 20%) and a 2 hour

examination in May for the remaining 80%. You should make every effort to attend all the

class tests. (There are no resits.) Do prepare for the tests so that you will be able to

maximize the 20% coursework component.

The exam paper is also the answer booklet. You must write your answer at the appropriate

places on the question paper. Rough work, which will not be marked, can be done on the

reverse sides of the question paper, or in additional booklets. During the examination you

will have access to the New Cambridge Statistical Tables. You may bring a college

approved calculator.

85

Lecturer:

Professor SG Scott

Semester:

First

Teaching arrangements:

Three hours of lectures each week, together with a one-hour tutorial class.

Prerequisites:

A thorough knowledge of 4CCM112a (CM112A) Calculus II. It will be helpful to attend

5CCM221a (CM221A) Analysis I, possibly concurrently, or to have attended 5CCM250a

(CM2504) Applied Analytic Methods, but neither of these is essential.

Assessment:

The module will by assessed by a two-hour written examination at the end of the academic

year.

Assignments:

Exercises will be given out on a weekly basis, starting in the first week of the module; it is

essential that you make a serious attempt to do these. Solutions handed in will be marked

and difficulties discussed in the tutorial class. In addition, it is essential that students work

through the lectures as the module progresses.

Aims and Objectives:

The theory of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) forms the basis for many fundamental

areas of mathematics. Apart from their fundamental role in physics and mechanics, such

as in describing how electromagnetic-waves propagate through space, PDEs also provide

the tools for many areas of pure mathematics. In geometric analysis, for instance, the

way in which a given space is curved (e.g a surface such as a sphere) is studied by

associating to it a geometric evolution equation ---- the idea is this, different spaces sound

differently when you tap them, as for example we know from tapping drums of different

shapes and sizes; the question, then, is can you hear the shape of a drum?

An important technique in solving PDEs is provided by functions of a complex variable,

which constitutes one of the most elegant branches of pure mathematics. The second part

of the module will be devoted to the implementation of those techniques.

The module will be taught in a manner akin to Calculus II, That is, this is a methods

course and so will not deal with the many abstractions that a more rigorous exposition

would entail. Nevertheless, a student who has mastered this module will be in a strong

position to appreciate the subtleties of a rigorous module on Complex Analysis such as

CM322C, or one of the many third and fourth year modules dealing with various aspects of

PDEs.

86

Syllabus:

Partial Differential Equations

Basic ideas: linear equations, homogeneous equations, superposition principle. Laplaces

equation in two variables, simple boundary value problems. Separation of variables.

Fourier series. Introduction to Fourier transforms with applications.

Complex Variable

Revision of complex numbers. Basic definitions: open sets, domain, curves, trace of a

curve. Definitions of continuity, differentiability, analyticity. Cauchy-Riemann equations.

Integration along a smooth curve; integration along a contour; Cauchys theorem.

Cauchys integral formula, Laurents theorem, Taylors theorem. Calculus of residues.

Contour integration.

Semester:

First

Teaching arrangements: Three hours of lectures each week, together with a one hour

tutorial.

Prerequisites:

4CCM115a Numbers and Functions (or equivalent background).

Assessment:

The module will be assessed by a two hour written examination at the end of the academic

year. There will be three class tests during the module, each of which will carry 5% of the

final grade. The dates will be announced in advance. There will be no duplicate class tests

for absentees. Students who miss class tests without good reason will get zero marks.

Students who miss class tests for good reason (e.g. can supply doctors certificates) will

be given an appropriately higher weighting for the final examination.

Assignments: Exercise sheets will be given out. Solutions handed in will be marked.

Students must realise that for successful progress in the module, the coursework has to be

done regularly, as it is handed out.

Aims and objectives:

Real Analysis is one of the core subjects in every reputable Mathematics degree

programme. It enables us to explain why results require proof and that statements are

only true in a context of some precise technical conditions. It also provides the knowledge

needed to make sense of a variety of other topics in the syllabus, such as complex

analysis, dynamical systems and differential equations, all of which have immense

importance within the subject. It is expected that students will understand and be able to

reproduce the proofs of the major theorems of the subject. They should also appreciate

the logical relationships between the different parts of the subject and be able to use the

ideas of the module in a variety of situations.

Syllabus: The module builds upon the material in 4CCM115a Numbers and Functions,

which you are expected to know. It emphasises the difference between school level

calculus and a rigorous treatment of the same topics. The material starts with definitions

of limits of sequences and series, and simple criteria for convergence, with many

examples of the kind you should learn how to handle. This part of the module includes the

Cauchy criterion, absolute convergence of series and a study of power series.

Real variable theorems include definitions of continuity and differentiation with proofs of

well established theorems for functions of a single real variable up to Taylor's theorem.

Properties of an elementary integral in one space dimension will be studied briefly, starting

from a list of axioms for the integral. Proofs will be given of the fundamental theorem of

calculus and of the rules for evaluating integrals.

88

Books: You are advised to acquire and use one of the following books (all available in the

library):

Press.

R Haggarty: Fundamentals of Mathematical Analysis. Addison Wesley.

David S. Stirling : Mathematical Analysis and Proof, Albion.

David Brannan: A First Course in Mathematical Analysis, Cambridge University

Not all the books adopt the same approach to integration and some notes will be

distributed on this topic.

and matrices in Rn (especially R2 and R3); 4CCM121a (CM121A) or some course

containing abstract algebraic ideas.

Assessment: For 5CCM222A, a 2hr. written examination at the end of the academic year

will count for 85% of total mark. In addition there will be 3 class tests during the semester,

time-tabled separately from the lectures (each counting for 5% of the total mark). For

6CCM222B, there are no class tests and the exam counts for 100% of total mark

Assignments: Regular exercise work is essential for success in this course.

Exercises will be set and marked weekly and the performance of each student will be

recorded for later reference.

Aims and objectives: This course sets concepts from the methods' course 4CCM113a

(CM113A) (e.g. determinant and dimension) in the more general framework of abstract

vector spaces. It also gives the precise definitions and proofs that are essential for much

of higher mathematics, both pure and applied. Further concepts and methods are also

introduced in the same manner. Examples from Rn and Cn will be given where possible

to illustrate the geometrical meaning behind the algebraic ideas. The course will

emphasize the interplay between abstract and more concrete ideas.

Syllabus: General definition and properties of vector spaces, subspaces and linear maps.

Linear independence, basis and dimension. Rank and nullity for linear maps. The relation

between linear maps and matrices. Change of basis and similarity of matrices. Inverse

matrices. Eigenvectors, eigenvalues and diagonalisation of matrices. Inner product

spaces and orthogonal diagonalisation.

Books: The course will not follow one particular textbook. There is a vast array of books

on linear algebra that contain the material of the course (often also covering the

preliminary material from linear methods). Here is a small sample, listed in roughly

increasing order of sophistication:

tutorial.

Prerequisites:

Although originally designed for joint-honours Mathematics-Computer

Science students, the module is also suitable for other second year single and third year

joint-honours students. There are no formal prerequisites. Pre-knowledge is minimal - a

little linear algebra helps. Any tools needed will be presented in the course, which can be

taken by Computer Science students who have a reasonable pass in CS1MC1 or CS1FC1

and permission from their Programme Director.

Assessment: The module will be assessed by a two-hour written examination at the end

of the academic year.

Assignments:

Weekly problems are set which are for learning not assessment. In

previous years there has been a strong correlation between attempting the weekly

problems and passing / doing well in the exam.

Aims and objectives: To give students an understanding of the nature of an algorithmic

solution to problems, to illustrate the idea by applications to problems in discrete

mathematics and to promote an algorithmic viewpoint in subsequent mathematical work.

Syllabus: Elementary properties of Integers. Functions and their behaviour. Introduction

to Recursion. Algorithms and complexity. Graphs including Eulers Theorem, shortest path

algorithm and vertex colouring. Trees - applications include problem solving and spanning

trees. Directed Graphs including networks. Dynamic programming. Codes and Cyphers with Hamming codes and RSA.

Books. The module was designed as a combination of useful and interesting (hopefully

both) topics and so is not based on any particular book.

Books you may like to look at are (do not buy but use for background reading):

Introduction to Graph Theory, Robin J Wilson

Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications, Kenneth H Rosen

Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics, Ralph P Grimaldi

Elementary number theory and its Applications, K H Rosen (for RSA)

Notes: All the problems, solutions and prepared material shown on the OHP (with two

exceptions) will appear on the module web page and can be downloaded. The web page

will be updated weekly and will carry any news or announcements.

Teaching arrangements:

Two hours of lectures each week.

Prerequisites:

Both of CM221A and CM321A, or similar analysis courses using normed spaces.

Assessment:

The course will be assessed by a two hour written examination at the end of the academic

year.

The purpose of the module is to introduce the notions of Fourier series and Fourier

transform and to study their basic properties. The main part of the module will be devoted

to the one dimensional case in order to simplify the definitions and proofs. Many

multidimensional results are obtained in the same manner, and those results may also be

stated. The Fourier technique is important in various fields, in particular, in the theory of

(partial) differential equations. It will be explained how one can solve some integral and

differential equations and study the properties of their solutions using this technique.

Syllabus:

Series expansions. Definition of Fourier series. Related expansions. Bessel's inequality.

Pointwise and uniform convergence of Fourier series. Periodic solutions of differential

equations. The vibrating string. Convolution equations. Mean square convergence.

This module will consist of four mini-modules of 10-12 hours duration, and will thus

enable students to gain a satisfactory understanding of the key concepts and applications

of a selection of important topics in both pure and applicable mathematics. Students need

only attend any selection of THREE of these four mini-modules.

Three hours of lectures each week plus occasional one-hour tutorials that will be

announced in advance.

Prerequisites:

5CCM222a (CM222A) (or 4CCM113a (CM113A) with some extra preparation) and

4CCM121a (CM121A) (or CM2501 with some extra preparation).

Assignments: Exercise sheets will be distributed in lectures. Solutions handed in the

following week will be marked and returned. Solution sheets will be handed out. Particular

points will be discussed in the occasional tutorials.

Aims and objectives:

To develop the theory of finite extensions of fields, culminating in an understanding of the

Galois Correspondence. To demonstrate the power of this theory by applying it to the

solution of historically significant questions. For instance: for which polynomials can all the

roots be written as `radical expressions' (i.e. expressions involving the usual operations

of arithmetic together with roots of any degree)? To provide an important tool for further

properties of finite extensions of fields and their degrees; algebraicity and transcendence;

field embeddings and automorphisms; normal extensions; separable extensions; the

Galois Correspondence; examples of practical calculation; soluble groups and extensions;

(in)solubility of polynomial equations by radical expressions.

Further topics may include finite fields, constructibility by straightedge and compass, etc.

as time allows.

Books: The two following are highly recommended:

(1) I. Stewart, `Galois Theory ', Chapman and Hall: 2nd ed. 1989, 3rd ed. 2004.

(2) J. Rotman, `Galois Theory ', Universitext, Springer, 2nd ed. 1998.

The course most closely follows the level and order of exposition of the 2nd edition of (1).

(The 3rd, expanded, edition starts at too elementary a level but contains interesting extra

detail). Rotman's book (2) lacks some of the colour and historical detail of (1). On the other

hand, it has useful sections on groups and rings. Further background material on groups

may be found in:

Important note: If you wish to take this module then you must inform Stephanie Rice in writing before the end

of September 2010 by sending an email to ug.maths@kcl.ac.uk with the subject "6CCM330A: registration

request". This does not commit you to taking the module. Numbers are limited and selection of eligible

students will be by means of a short interview in early October. You should also decide which alternative

module you will take in case your application to join 6CCM330A is unsuccessful and initially register for this

alternative module. Please DO NOT register for 6CCM330A until you have been selected to take this

module.

Short Description:

This module provides an opportunity for final year students to gain first hand experience of

mathematics education, through a mentoring scheme with mathematics teachers in local

schools. Each student will work with the same class(es) for half a day every week

throughout the Spring Term (Second Semester). Students will be selected for their

commitment and suitability for working in schools and will be given a range of

responsibilities from classroom assistance to self-originated special projects.

Aims:

To help the student gain confidence in communicating their subject and develop strong

organisational and interpersonal skills that will be of benefit to them in employment and in

life. To enable the student to understand how to address the needs of individuals and

devise and develop mathematics projects and teaching methods appropriate to engage

the relevant age group they are working with. To allow the student to act as an

enthusiastic role model for pupils interested in mathematics and to offer them a positive

experience of working with pupils and teachers.

Training and basic skills:

The student will be given an initial introduction to relevant elements of the National

Mathematics Curriculum and its associated terminology. They will receive basic training in

working with children and conduct in the school environment and also will normally be

given a chance to visit the school they will be working in before the start of the module.

108

Initial contact with the teacher and pupils will be as a classroom assistant, watching how

the teacher handles the class, observing the level of mathematics taught and the structure

of the lesson and offering practical support to the teacher.

Teaching assistance:

The teacher will assign the student actual teaching tasks, which will vary according to

specific needs. This could include offering problem-solving coaching to a smaller group of

higher or lower ability pupils or taking the last ten minutes of the lesson for the whole

class. The student will have to demonstrate that the teaching they give is appropriate for

the level of mathematics knowledge and understanding of the pupils they are teaching.

The teacher will offer guidance to the student during their weekly interaction and also

through feedback and liaison with the Departmental Module Coordinator will individually

determine the level of responsibility and special project given to the student.

Special project:

Each student will devise a special project on the basis of his/her own assessment of what

will interest the particular pupils they are working with. The student will have to show that

he/she can analyse a specific teaching problem and devise and prepare appropriately

targeted teaching materials (including plans for coverage of topic items, integrating

structured activities for pupils and possibly basic tests).

Written reports:

Each student will keep a journal of her/his own progress in working in the classroom

environment and will be asked to prepare a written report on the special project he/she has

run, with an assessment of how well it worked and how it might be improved.

Assessment Methods:

o Students end of module report (40%);

o Teachers end of module report including assessment of students planning and

delivery of special projects (40%);

o Students oral presentation (20%).

describing the basic formalism, where states are vectors in an infinite-dimensional space

and observables such as position and momentum are operators on this space, and

considers the dynamics of various simple quantum systems. It is shown how two of the

key features of quantum mechanicsHeisenberg's uncertainty principle and the surprising

discreteness of certain quantitiesflow naturally from the formalism.

Syllabus:

The module starts with a historical account of the problems with classical physics which

led to the development of quantum physics. The remainder of the module includes a

development of the basic formalism of quantum mechanics and its probabilistic

interpretation, examples of simple systems, the particular case of a particle in one

dimension in a variety of potentials, the Dirac delta function, Heisenberg's and

Schrdinger's equations of motion and the relationship between these two approaches, a

derivation of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle for two observables which do not commute

and a discussion of symmetry.

This is a second module in abstract algebra. It aims to develop the general theory of rings

(especially commutative ones) and then study in some detail a new concept, that of a

module over a ring. Both abelian groups and vector spaces may be viewed as modules

and important structure theorems for both follow from the general theory. The theory of

rings and modules is key to many more advanced algebra courses e.g. Algebraic Number

Theory. It can also help with others, e.g. Galois Theory, Representation Theory and

Algebraic Geometry.

Syllabus:

Basic concepts of ring theory: subrings, ideals, quotient, product, matrix and polynomial

rings; factorisation in integral (euclidean, principal ideal) domains. Basic concepts of

module theory: submodules, quotient modules, direct sums, homomorphisms, finitely

generated, cyclic, free and torsion modules, annihilator ideals. Matrices and finitely

generated modules over a principal ideal domain: Equivalence of matrices, structure

theory of modules, applications to abelian groups and to vector spaces with a linear

transformation.

Prerequisites:

Basic knowledge of vector spaces, matrices, groups, real analysis.

Assessment:

One two-hour written examination at the end of the academic year.

Assignments:

Exercises taken from the main notes and books. Solutions will be provided (see above).

Aims and objectives:

This course gives an introduction to the theory of Lie groups, Lie algebras and their

representations. Lie groups are essentially groups with continuous parameters, in such a

way that the elements form a manifold. They arise in many parts of mathematics and

physics, often in the form of matrices satisfying certain conditions (e.g. that the matrices

should be invertible, or unitary, or orthogonal). One of the beauties of the subject is the

way that methods from many different areas of mathematics (algebra, geometry, analysis)

are all brought in together. The course should enable you to go on to further topics in

group theory, differential geometry, quantum field theory, string theory and other areas.

Syllabus:

Definitions of the basic structures: Lie algebras and Lie groups. Examples of Lie groups

and Lie algebras. Matrix Lie groups, their Lie algebras, the exponential map, BakerCampbell-Hausdorff formula. Abstract Lie algebras, examples: sl(2), sl(3) (maybe),

Poincare algebra. Representations of Lie algebras, sub-representations, Schur's Lemma,

tensor products. Cartan-Weyl basis, classification of simple Lie algebras (without proof).

extensions (degree, minimal polynomials and algebraicity, embeddings eg as contained in

the early part of the syllabus for Galois Theory (CM326Z/6CCM326A/7CCM326B)). If

either condition is not met, the lecturer must be consulted before registering for the

course.

Assessment: By a 3 hour written examination at the end of the academic year.

Assignments: Exercise sheets will be distributed weekly in lectures. Full solutions will be

provided. Doing the exercises and attending lectures and tutorials are essential to

following the course. For this reason they are compulsory.

Aims and objectives: To give a thorough understanding of the `arithmetic' of number

fields (finite extensions of Q) and their rings of integers, making use of abstract algebra.

We shall note the analogies and differences between this arithmetic and that of Q and Z

(e.g. unique factorisation may not hold). This motivates the study of ideals of the ring of

integers, the class group and units. Concrete examples will illustrate the theory. This

course provides a foundation for studies in modern (algebraic) number theory and is an

esssential ingredient of some other areas of algebra and arithmetic geometry.

Syllabus: Polynomials and field extensions (brief reminders and terminology). Number

fields. Norm, trace and characteristic polynomial. The ring of integers, integral bases,

discriminant. Quadratic fields. Cyclotomic fields. Non-unique factorisation of elements,

ideals, unique factorisation of ideals, norms of ideals, class group. Lattices, Minkowski's

Theorem, computation of the class group. Extra topics (as time allows): Applications to

Diophantine equations, Units, Dirichlet's Unit Theorem.

Books (Rough decreasing order of suitability. All are good and recommended):

1. Ian Stewart and David Tall, `Algebraic Number Theory and Fermat's Last Theorem', 3rd

ed., AK Peters, 2001

2. Richard Mollin, `Algebraic Number Theory', Chapman and Hall, 1999

Lecturer:

Professor E Shargorodsky

(or via links from Kings Maths home page)

Semester:

First

Teaching arrangements: Two hours of lectures each week, together with a half hour

informal tutorial.

Prerequisites: 6CCM321a (CM321A) and 5CCM222a (CM222A) or equivalents (that is, a

course in analysis using normed spaces and a course in linear algebra).

Assessment: The module will be assessed by a two hour written examination at the end

of the academic year.

Assignments: Exercise sheets will be given out. Solutions handed in will be marked and

difficulties discussed in class. In addition, it is essential that students work through the

theory as the module progresses.

Aims and objectives: This module will introduce you to the terminology, notation and the

basic results and concepts of Banach and Hilbert spaces. The goal is to establish one

major theoretical result (the spectral theorem for compact self-adjoint operators) and

demonstrate some applications. The relation of the subject with other branches of

mathematics (Fourier analysis, complex functions, differential equations) will be indicated.

This course should prepare you for reading the literature of a wide variety of subjects in

which Hilbert space ideas are used.

Syllabus: Elementary properties of Hilbert and Banach spaces. Orthonormal bases.

Fourier expansions. Riesz representation theorem. The adjoint. Orthogonal projections.

Spectral theory of bounded linear operators. The spectral theorem for compact self-adjoint

operators. Applications to differential and integral equations. Further topics as time

permits chosen from: the spectral theorem for bounded selfadjoint operators; comments

on unbounded operators and applications; Fredholm operators.

Books: The module will be self-contained so there are no required texts but the following

books are suitable:

1. E. Kreyszig, Introductory Functional Analysis with Applications. Wiley.

2. B. Bollobas, Linear Analysis. Cambridge University Press.

3. H.G. Heuser, Functional Analysis. Wiley.

Lecturer:

Dr B Noohi

Semester:

Second

Teaching arrangements:

Two hours of lectures each week.

Prerequisites:

Both CM221A and CM321A, or similar analysis courses using normed spaces.

Assessment: The course will be assessed by a two hour written examination at the end of

the academic year. The course will involve supplementary reading on Sobolev spaces and

distributions in one and higher dimensions. This will make up 15% of the final exam mark.

Assignments:

Exercise sheets will be given out.

Aims and objectives:

The purpose of the module is to introduce the notions of Fourier series and Fourier

transform and to study their basic properties. The main part of the module will be devoted

to the one dimensional case in order to simplify the definitions and proofs. Many

multidimensional results are obtained in the same manner, and those results may also be

stated. The Fourier technique is important in various fields, in particular, in the theory of

(partial) differential equations. It will be explained how one can solve some integral and

differential equations and study the properties of their solutions using this technique.

Syllabus:

Series expansions. Definition of Fourier series. Related expansions. Bessel's inequality.

Pointwise and uniform convergence of Fourier series. Periodic solutions of differential

equations. The vibrating string. Convolution equations. Mean square convergence.

Schwartz space S. Fourier transform in S. Inverse Fourier transform. Parseval's formula.

Projects

The BSc Project Option 6CCM345a (CM345C)

Third year BSc students may elect to do a project. The topic must be of a generally

mathematical nature and the project must be supervised by a member of staff. Students

are advised to discuss this option and obtain the agreement of a member of staff to act as

supervisor before the beginning of their third year. A project title, outline and supervision

plan must be agreed with the supervisor and a form submitted, signed by the supervisor,

to Dr N Gromov by Monday 11 October 2010. Registration is not complete until this has

been done.

The results of the project must be submitted, as a dissertation of 5,000-10,000 words, to

the project supervisor by 16.00 on Wednesday 23 March 2011. Two copies are required.

The dissertation will be examined by the project supervisor and a second examiner, the

latter to be appointed by the Chair of the Board. The two examiners will also conduct an

oral examination of the candidate.

A rough guide to the general areas in which members of staff may be willing and available

to supervise projects in 2010/2011 is as follows:

Algebra / Number Theory

DJ Burns, FI Diamond, PL Kassaei

Analysis / Differential Equations

AB Pushnitski, Y Safarov, E Shargorodsky.

Geometric Analysis

SG Scott

Geometry

D Panov, AN Pressley, K Rietsch, G Tinaglia

Disordered Systems and Neural Networks

A Annibale, E Katzav, I Prez Castillo, PK Sollich.

A list of the possible projects will be published on the module page. Students should feel

free to approach members of staff with topics from other areas. A document Information

for Students on the Project Option is available from the module web page giving further

details.

All fourth year MSci students are required to complete a project on a mathematical topic.

This involves writing a report of between 5,000 and 10,000 words, and giving a 20 minute

seminar to staff and fellow students. The project counts as a full unit, which makes it a

very important part of the final year. Each student will have a supervisor; the supervisors

task is to advise, not to direct the project, but students should feel free to consult as

necessary, and in particular are advised to show the supervisor a draft of the report at an

early stage. The choice of supervisor is by agreement between the student and the

member of staff. A list of the possible projects will be published on the module page.

140

At registration in the Department, each fourth year student will be given a form on which to

state the topic and provisional title of his or her project. This must be signed by the

supervisor and returned to Dr N Gromov by Monday 11 October 2010. Registration is

not complete until this has been done.

There will be informal seminars during the revision period at the beginning of the second

semester. While it is not expected that the projects will be near completion at that point,

students should be able to give at least an account of the background and an indication of

what they hope to accomplish. The deadline for submission of projects is 16.00

Wednesday 23 March 2011.

Ethics plays a role in virtually all aspects of human activity. Although use of the term often brings to

mind great issues involving human suffering, ethics are also at play in day to day life. We would

like to bring to your attention some ethical rules that we expect to be followed by all of our

students, graduates and staff throughout their mathematical careers. Perhaps the most important

role that ethics plays specifically for mathematics is simply that of honesty and integrity when

solving mathematical problems and proving theorems. Ultimately the truth in mathematics always

comes out (although it may take hundreds of years). Being caught in a position where you are

found to have mislead or fabricated evidence is considered a deeply serious breach of standards

and will have a very negative, if not devastating, effect on your reputation and career.

1. A mathematician shall never knowingly put forward incorrect statements or calculations and

claim that they are correct.

2. A mathematician shall always endeavour to determine which statements are true and which are

false by logically sound processes of deduction and proof.

3. A mathematician shall never attempt to mislead others as to the truth or falsity of a proposition.

4. When making statements a mathematician shall always be clear as to whether they are false,

believed to be true, or known to be true. In the later case a mathematician must be able to provide

direction as to where the proof of the statement can be found.

5. A mathematician shall always give appropriate credit to the work of others in accordance with

standard referencing and plagiarism protocols.

6. A mathematician shall not knowingly engage in research, or assist the research of others, which

is intended to cause public harm.

In addition to the academic-related rules listed above there are many ethical standards that any

employee of a company or institute will be expected to uphold. In general these will depend upon

the nature of the job and the contract that the mathematician has with the employer. Below are a

set of rules that were obtained from the code of conduct for members of the Institute of

Mathematics and its Applications. It is offered as a guide to students as to what is likely to be

expected of them by their employers and is in line with codes of conduct for many professional

institutions.

A code of working conduct designed to cover all eventualities must necessarily be posed in

general terms expressing broad ethical principles. The rules proposed indicate the manner in

which mathematicians are expected to conduct themselves in a number of frequently-occurring

situations. In other situations, mathematicians are required to conduct themselves in accordance

with the principle that, in any conflict between a mathematician 's personal interest or the interests

of an employer or sponsor and fair and honest dealing with members of the public, duty to the

public must prevail.

1. A mathematician shall have regard to protection of the public interest as determined by criminal

and civil legislation.

2. A mathematician in the position of an employer, in addition to meeting the relevant regulations

and standards, shall set fair and reasonable terms and conditions of employment.

151

business nor that of any previous employer.

4. A mathematician shall inform an employer in writing of any potential conflict between personal

interest and faithful service to the employer.

5. A mathematician shall not accept remuneration in connection with services rendered to an

employer other than from the employer or with the employer's consent; nor shall a mathematician

of the department receive directly or indirectly any undeclared royalty, gratuity or commission, for

any article or process used in connection with employment if such royalty, gratuity, or commission

conflicts with the employer's terms and conditions of employment.

6. A mathematician shall not offer to provide or receive in return, any payment or commission or

otherwise as the inducement for the introduction of business from a client.

7. A mathematician shall not, except where specifically so instructed, handle clients' monies or

place contracts or orders in connection with work on which engaged when acting as an

independent consultant.

10. A mathematician called upon to give an opinion shall give an opinion that is objective and

reliable, shall have sought authorisation where this is appropriate, and have due regard to the

likely consequences of any such statement.

11. A mathematician shall only undertake service where as a mathematician, the required level of

competence is possessed.

12. A mathematician shall accept responsibility for personal work and for the work of subordinates

done under direction, seeking always to conform to recognised good practice including quality

standards.
