So classes are underway, and I've had a sampling of all of my lectures this fall. My TA work is still on hold for the time being, as the professors want to ensure that enough knowledge has been injected into the students before they try to find out how much is left. I can say, without a doubt, that working in strictly a computer science aspect for almost the last decade has eroded my mathematical skills.
While in a class on Monday, the professor was dutifully going over the 'Things you should already know to take this course', and was laying out a framework for the rest of the year. At just past the half way mark, he scribed this to the chalk board:
Making matters worse, is that it didn't really look like that on the chalk board. Integrands turned into esses, exes and tees became hard to tell apart, superscript and subscripts swapped places and the whole thing turned into a white on black calcite orgy.
Even after I looked the equality up, and could clearly read it in tex glory, I still had no idea what was going on. I can recognize all the symbols, but the ideas I can't currently put together. Making matters more difficult is that a good chunk of these developments have been made recently (in mathematical terms), and wouldn't have been around when I was schooling. Not that it matters, the area in which I am now studying is not the same as my focus during my undergraduate schooling
Although, by the end of this year I will be able to explain what is going on with the Lévy–Khintchine representation of a Stochastic process, else I won't have the grades to be here and worry about it.
