- Official Copy of old qualifying exams

- List of problems to practice (contains questions from 2015 and 2016 Qualifying Exams, which are missing in the document above, as well as questions from HW, midterms, and final exams assigned during the 2017-2018 academic year, or relevant problems assigned in the past by the professors in the Qual Committee). Here is a copy of the LaTeX document that I used to create this list. It should not be taken as a closed list that's enough to PhD pass the qual, but rather as a study guide!

The following are "practice qualifying exams"; they have never been qualifying exams themselves, but I wrote them keeping in mind the material covered during the 2017-2018 academic year, and the kinds of problems assigned by the professors in the Committee in previous years. Not all the problems have been assigned in the past, but they are good practice. You should do them on your own, without external help, as if you were taking an actual exam (which have a duration of 3 hours).
