Theory to Study for Final Exam (Nov 23rd)

The final exam will cover all the material covered on the first three exams as well as 5.4, 5.5, and 6.1

Just as there was on the Midterm Exams there will be some theoretical questions on the Final Exam. Here is a list of Definitions, Theorems and Proofs that I could ask about on the Final Exam. I may also ask you to use these theorems/definitions to solve problems that are the same as or very similar to problems that are on the required/recommended or review problems.
