The teaching material is produced in various formats for printing and on-screen reading. If you are not familiar with second quantization, we recommend that you go through the additional material included here. The PDF files are based on LaTeX and have seldom technical failures that cannot be easily corrected. The HTML-based files, called "HTML" and "ipynb" below, apply MathJax for rendering LaTeX formulas and sometimes this technology gives rise to unexpected failures (e.g., incorrect rendering in a web page despite correct LaTeX syntax in the formula). Consult the corresponding PDF files if you find missing or incorrectly rendered formulas in HTML or ipython notebook files.
