An overview of mathlib #

Note that mathlib is currently being actively developed, and new things tend to appear on almost a weekly basis. In particular, the list below might get out of date very quickly. This page was last updated on 27th December 2019.

We have a specific page listing topics in undergraduate mathematics.

Algebra #

Groups. Subgroups, quotients, cosets, centralizers, free groups, abelianisation, Sylow 1. Rings. primes and irreducibles, characteristic of a ring, ideals, fields, Euclidean domains, principal ideal domains, unique factorization domains, Noetherian rings. Ordered rings and fields. Polynomials and power series. Localisation. Modules over a ring, direct sums and limits, tensor products. Lie algebras (definition and basic properties). Fields: minimal polynomials, finite extensions, algebraic extensions, splitting fields, perfect closure, finite fields. Vector spaces, bases, finite-dimensional spaces, matrices, linear maps, dual spaces, bilinear and sesquilinear forms.

See here for more details information about linear algebra in mathlib.

Number theory #

The naturals, the integers, the rationals. Primes, uniqueness of factorization. GCDs. Congruences and modular arithmetic. Z is an ED/PID/UFD. Sums of two and four squares, Pell’s equation in cases needed for Matiyasevich’s theorem (d=a^2-1). Euler’s Totient function. Quadratic reciprocity. p-adic numbers. Hensel’s Lemma.

Analysis #

The chain rule, product rule, mean value theorem, C^n and C^infty functions. Sups and Infs. Sequences and sums. Sum of a geometric progression, exp and log, trig and inverse trig functions, basic properties (double angle formulae etc). Pi, and proof that it’s between 3.141 and 3.142 The complex numbers are algebraically closed. Definition of real manifold, manifolds with corners. Vector bundles, tangent bundle.

Topology #

Metric spaces. Cauchy sequences, Hausdorff distance and Gromov-Hausdorff distance. Completions. Lipschitz continuous functions. Uniform spaces, uniform continuity, completions.

Measure theory. #

Sigma algebras, measure spaces, Borel measurable functions, probability spaces, the Lebesgue integral, L^1 spaces, the Bochner integral, the Giry monad (i.e. measures on a measurable space form a measurable space).

Category theory #

Categories, small and large categories. Functors, full and faithful functors, natural transformations, the Yoneda lemma. Equivalence of categories, sums, products, limits, adjoints. Monoidal categories. The category of commutative rings, the category of modules over a ring, the category of measurable spaces.
