The following links provide a detailed guideline of the background material required for beginning graduate students. Each section consists of a list of topics, together with a collection of examples illustrating important concepts. 

It is the responsibility of each beginning student to ensure that they are familiar with the material in this guideline, to the extent that the material is relevant for their courses. Students should attempt the problems, and be willing to revisit background material when they find the problems challenging.
