MOAC Maths Worksheets

These exercise sheets are meant to provide a quick introduction to the main ideas, principles and results of various key topics for students following the multi-disciplinary MSc/PhD programme in the MOAC Doctoral Training Centre. For an in-depth, more rigourous treatment, the student should consult a textbook (see recommended texts below); the worksheets provide a study aid to these books.
