I prepared the following notes to help me stay on topic and be organized. They are not are not a substitute for the textbooks, but they do give a guide to the relevant textbook sections. They contain topics that may not be covered in the lectures, not because they are unimportant, but because time is limited. In the past, some students have complained that it is hard to look up in the notes the information they need to solve problems, and that there is more information than "necessary."

I usually revise these notes immediately before and immediately following the lectures and even later, so while you may want to look them over before the lecture, you may not want to print them out. These revisions are typically to correct typos, and to clarify certain ideas. The date/times in parentheses reflect the most recent upload.
