PS477/577 Lecture notes: Suggested Uses and Caveat

  • All lectures are copyright of Ronald Mitchell
  • Provided as a service to students to facilitate note-taking during class.  They are not a substitute for class attendance. I produce these for my own use and they may have inaccuracies, for which, my apologies. If you miss a lecture, you may want to see if you can find my video of the corresponding lecture at my Youtube website
  • They do not provide complete coverage of topics discussed in class and may have little relationship to the content of a lecture. They currently follow the planned schedule for the course but may not correspond exactly to scheduled lecture dates. Download notes as they become available, print them out double-spaced and annotate them during lecture.
