NOTE: These files are meant to augment the notes you took during the lectures, but they are not meant to be a substitute. You should also be aware that they are MY PERSONAL notes and as such, they are not to be used by anyone without my express permission. If you are taking my GY 112 class, you have that permission. Everyone else needs to contact me first. Also be advised that these notes probably contain glaring errors and typos. Use them at your own risk! Occasionally I make use of materials from other sources (primarily scientific publications). I have referenced these sources as accurately as possible.
