  • Sylvia Amar completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    It is a course which physicists and mathematicians appreciate, but I think beginners can understand. It talk about the unification of mathematics, Le Galois, and symetry. I learn a lot and it was very interesting.
