Lecture Notes

This page has links to the lecture notes. If you do not see the lecture notes posted by the afternoon after class, please send me an email reminder. Each set of notes is posted in two forms, 2-slides per page and 6-slides per page. Unless otherwise indicated, all readings are from our text by Shirley and Marschner.

Access Forbidden? For copyright reasons, the lecture notes are accessible only from IP addresses within the University of Maryland. If this is a problem, please check out the use of a VPN client, which allows you log into the University system from off campus, and then access files as if you were logged in locally. It is free software which can be downloaded from OIT.
