Lectures and Labs are spread over the week, on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. See below for a more precise schedule. See the official schedule on TimeEdit.
Slides by the textbook authors can be found at:
These slides are frequently used during our lectures. They also help link the lectures to the textbooks, which we strongly recommend you study.
They can be found here.
We will try to make the slides/lecture notes available online on this page the day before each class. A new version of the slides may be uploaded after class according to what has actually been presented. We encourage you to take notes independent of the slides material available before class.
If you want to get an idea of the material covered in the course ahead of time, the lectures slides from previous course instances are available here
NOTE. This is a tentative schedule, subject to change!
