Lecture Notes

Here you will find the lecture notes that I use when teaching. They are telegraphic, so they are not a substitute for the lectures. But, if you attend the lecture they will most likely be a good memory prosthetic. At present - January, 2012 - there is almost nothing here. I will populate this page as the course proceeds, so that all my lecture notes will be here at the end of the term.
