Some Links

I came across some links which seem like they’ll be helpful over the next few years of Ph.D school. Posting them here to refer to later.

Some poster design tips: http://www2.lib.uct.ac.za/infolit/poster.htm

A nice paper on ‘how to prove things.’ It’s written for someone in their first proof-based course, but still has good tips for the general prover (pdf): http://cheng.staff.shef.ac.uk/proofguide/proofguide.pdf

A paper on why determinants shouldn’t be introduced in Linear Algebra classes until, e.g., eigenvalues have already been established. It’s the basis for Linear Algebra Done Right (both the paper and the book by S. Axler): http://www.axler.net/DwD.html
