Lecture notes:

Lecture notes are up to date. A few might still have some typos. I will try to fix these before the relevant lectures (sometimes not until late the night before).

Notes are provided only in pdf (Adobe Acrobat, or, if you don't like Adobe, Foxit (not as bloated as Adobe)). Notes are organized by topic, not by date. Incidentally, these pages look best with firefox or chrome. Both of these are better, more secure, and more in compliance with the html standard than explorer.
