Issues regarding my course notes/slides.
Most of my course notes and slides were created in the Windows version of (La)Tex called MikTex available free of charge from
here. MikTex provides beautiful and most importantly stable type setting for formula intensive
documents. Notes are posted as pdf files for portability across platforms such as Unix, Linux and Windows. Consequently, notes
do not have associated Word/Powerpoint or any other Windows-limited source files. If you face problems downloading/printing notes,
please read below.
Download Adobe Acrobat Reader to view course notes/slides.
Got problems with downloading/printing pdf files, the solution might be here .
If you are using the Internet Explorer to browse the course web pages but experince delays, you may want to try
Firefox browser. Firefox is free to download and I am told that it is faster.
