Lecture Notes

Lecture Notes (.pdf files)

As stated in the course description, this course has a variety of required pre-requisite knowledge, including linear algebra, complex arithmetic, sums/series, and calculus.

Here are some good places to refresh your knowledge of math:

You better print out all the notes for a chapter before we begin that chapter and bring them to each class.
