    List of POWERPOINT and PDF (lecture notes) files

    Please note the dates on the filenames: those with 2016 in the name are current for this Spring Semester.
    Certain files are for lectures that will not be given this Fall and their revision dates go back to 2006 in some cases.
    As I revise the lecture notes, new files will appear in the 2016 section above the line.
