    What and how to study for a pure maths education at university?

    TL;DR Summary: The university pure maths courses feel rough and uninsightful, yet exclude (temporally) the possibility of studying good texts. What and how does one study in order to attain such understanding as to be profound, but allowing, by structure, still to follow the curriculum...

    I Lecture notes on SUSY using finite matrix as example?

    As you know, a lot of SUSY examples, particularly from Witten's "SUSY QM", pivot on the factorisation trick: produce two hamiltonians $$H_0=AA^+, H_1=A^+A$$ and see they have the same eigenvalues except for ceros. The proof usually goes by: let ##\Psi## be an eigenvector of ##H_0##, consider...

    Is this equation from my lecture notes wrong? (RE: Transfer Functions)

    Mistake 1. In the lecture slides from my university it says that: "The response of a stable first-order transfer function to a unit sine wave input is:" Y(s)=\frac{1}{s+a}*\frac{\omega}{s^2+\omega^2} Isn't this missing an a in the numerator since the standard form of a first order transfer...
