Here is this semester's tentative schedule; we will update it as the semester progresses.
Please note that lecture notes are provided as a supplement, and are NOT a substitute for attending lecture. In particular, these are not guaranteed, so expect technical difficulties to prevent them from being posted at least a few times in the semester; they also will not contain exercises whose solutions are worked out on the board in class. Please plan accordingly to either take notes or get them from a friend if necessary.
