The lecture notes, any class handouts, and any other lecture materials will be available here.

I try to avoid errors but my two-fingered typing techniques often fails me late at night when I am preparing lecture material. If there is a an error in the notes, the textbook will have the correct information. Please let me know of any errors so I can correct my notes on this site.

I create new lecture notes every year to avoid giving stale lectures. As a result, lecture notes may not be posted on the web site until after the class in question. Please read the sections of the text pertanent to the lecture in advance. This will greatly enhance the usefulness of the lectures for you.
