The teaching material is produced in various formats for printing and on-screen reading.

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.
