Note: The pdf files under "lecture notes" contain a few key equations and graphs from class. If you print them out and bring them to class, you can avoid copying those during class and avoid potential transcription errors. They are not meant as a substitute for your own class notes. In no cases are they complete representations of the course material, and in most cases, they will not be comprehensible without your having attended class.
