Study materials

Last updated on 12/13/12.

Note: The links in the reading schedule are for any available lecture notes, and the occasional external website. The lecture notes are scanned PDFs. I compress them before posting them on the website, which reduces their file size to less than 5% of the original (!) but does tend to make them fuzzy. (Let me know if something is too hard to read.) They should suffice for double-checking something in your notes, but I wouldn't recommend trying to read them as your primary source of information for the course.
