Course notes

We would like to thank Serena Spinoso that make available the notes she took in class during the 2011-2012 academic year. While there are no guarantees that everything is correct, nor that the learning material in the current academic year will be exactly the same as in 2011-2012, we believe those notes may help students to better prepare the exam.
