Lecture notes
NOTE: these lecture notes are intended to supplement the
notes you take in the lectures. You can use them to supply
extra steps of algebra if you need them or for additional
background information or for extra depth. You may not need
them at all. They are too detailed to serve as replacements
for the lectures.
Note that they are updated continually; if something arises
in a lecture, even the 2011 versions below may change after a day
or two.
