Lecture Plan

Lecture notes for each lecture will be available after each lecture (links will be available from the lecture plan below). In addition, the relevant sections of the textbook [ME] are listed under Reading (not all of the material in these sections will be covered by the preparatory course). The lecture plan will be updated after each lecture.

A list of problems from the textbook are listed for each lecture, and you are supposed to solve these problems after class (at least the ones you have not done in class), before the next lecture. Solution to problems will be available after the next lecture.
