Notes are now online. I have taken them from a mixture of sources and apologise for the poor 
formatting. Mostly I blame Powerpoint that tries only to be true to the Evil Empire. 
The fonts are messed up and the links will only work if I spend a year making them work. 

I will spend some more time on this next week so don't worry too much about broken links. 

Recent changes will be listed here. 
This web page will be updated regularly thoughout the course.
