Full Topical Outline (pdf)

Lecture notes will be periodically posted on this web site before material is covered in class. Paper copies of lecture notes will also be handed out in class to aid note taking. Time permitting, corrections and additions will be posted on the web site subsequent to lectures. Materials are organized by topic in the rough order intended to be covered in class. Postings will be in pdf format including electronic slides produced in OpenOffice and Microsoft PowerPoint (pdf in compact vector form with embeded fonts), and scans of handwritten notes (pdf in bitmap form). In some cases notes are posted in both one slide per page (for presentation) and four slides per page handout (for more compact printing) formats. Notes will be maintained on this web site after the course with occasional updates, corrections, and extensions until a next version of the course is given. At that time the web site will be frozen with a link to the newer version.

Daily problem sets will be handed out in class and subsequently posted below in pdf format on this web site. The problem sets are due at the start of lectures on the next day. Solutions will not be posted on the web site but paper copies of solutions will be given in class and solutions will be reviewed. Students are encouraged to discuss the problem sets with other students, the grader, and the lecturers, but are required to turn in their own solutions.

A take home final exam will be handed out on the next to last lecture and subsequently posted below in pdf format on this web site. The final exam is due at the start of the final lecture. Both course lecture notes and the student's own personal notes can be used on the final exam and work must be independent. Students are not allowed to consult others other than clarification questions to the lecturers.
