Lecture Notes:  These are the notes that I use to prepare and deliver my lecture.  They are provided here as an additional resource for students.  However, they are not guaranteed to be complete, accurate, or up-to-date, and should not be viewed as a replacement for taking notes in class.  Should these notes conflict with anything I have stated or demonstrated in class, then what it is presented in class takes precedence.  Please bring any discrepancies to my attention.
