There is no textbook for this course. The course material will come
from the lectures and conference papers that will be handed out over
the course of the term. You are expected to read the papers
before coming to class, as they will serve as the basis of
class discussion. Lectures will be interactive, and class attendance
is highly encouraged.
Issues relating to the term project and homework assignments will be
handled largely in the discussion section. The TA will likely be far
more accommodating to questions from those students who regularly
attend discussion sections.
