A Stick Figure

Hello! If you were looking for Jerry's webpage, you found it.

I am currently a second year masters students in the Mathematics Department at UCSB.

Before this, I was doing my undergraduate studies in mathematics at the College of Creative Studies here in UCSB.

Once in a while*, I write about my Christian faith on my WordPress.

Galatians 2:20

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be William S. Massey's A Basic Course in Algebraic Topology .

I am intended to serve as a textbook for a course in algebraic topology at the beginning graduate level. The main topics covered are the classification of compact 2-manifolds, the fundamental group, covering spaces, singular homology theory, and singular cohomology theory. These topics are developed systematically, avoiding all unnecessary definitions, terminology, and technical machinery. Wherever possible, the geometric motivation behind the various concepts is emphasized.

I decided to take inspiration from my fellow Chinese academics and put my Chinese name alongside my English one. Unlike my compatriots from halfway across the world however, I came to the US at a relatively young age (of six) and grew up in California. In fact, not only do I prefer English over Chinese, my Chinese abilities are absolutely rubbish compared to that of my native-bred colleagues.

* Due to the fact that I usually have a lot of other things to do, it's quite difficult for me to find time to write regularly. As such, new writings will come out on a sporadic and infrequent basis.

As a Christian, my life is built up through faith in Jesus Christ. If you're reading this and would like to talk to me about my faith, feel free to reach out. However, if your intention is to get into some sort of debate with me, don't bother wasting my time.
