Contact info and Notes

I will produce lecture notes during the semester and will keep them in a folder in the Astronomy Library. If you need help or have questions you can reach me here:

New!! Scanned Notes of the Course

I have scanned my handwritten notes and HW solutions and published them in PDF format. In order to avoid creating files that are too large I have created 7 separate files. Enjoy.

Of Course this is also the appropriate time and place to remind you to complete the online course evaluation . It is considered important for tenure promotion but a meaningful evaluation of the course should be based on more than one or two student's evaluations (happened before :). Thanks!
