Class Notes

Note: Each set of class notes has two versions: A set of slides that is convenient for viewing and a printer friendly version. DO NOT PRINT THE 'SLIDES', THEY ARE VERY VERY LONG. The printer friendly version has exactly the same content but takes much less pages. You may print the printer friendly version.
