    Printable Version of Notes

    As a way of being able to print out the notes more conveniently, here are a couple of links:

    You can use your browser's print command to print them, or to generate a pdf file. A cover page is located here.

    Some browsers don't do the page break properly on the files above: I have found that my old version of Firefox gets it right, while up to date versions of Safari and Chrome have issues for the two column format, at least on my computer. Thus, I have also generated a pdf file with four pages per sheet. This file (10Mb) may be found here. This is a much cheaper way of getting the course packet! You can get it bound at FedEx/Kinko's, or use your own 3-ring binder. Printing front and back gets the notes down to a page count that the coil machine can eat easily...
