There will be two tests on the 9 November and the 30 November, each contributing 5% to the overall credit.

Problem sheets are here: sheet 1

Solutions will appear here in due course.

I will run problem classes roughly every second week. Please email me your questions for these classes in advance!

Notes from last year are here but may be modified following this year's lectures.

Reading list is intended to give you more details of the results covered in class, more exercises and further theory. These books contain far more material than will be covered in the course or needed for the exam.
