We will roughly follow the notes of Mikhail Ershov, available here. Notes will be uploaded to the UVACollab page as we go along.


Homework assignments will be posted on the class home page in UVACollab (under ‘Resources’) every Wednesday, starting from January 17th. The assignment will be due at the start of the lecture the following Wednesday (e.g. the first assignment is due at the start of the lecture on Wednesday January 24th). There will be no makeup homework. Assignments should be cleanly and legibly written, and stapled together with your name on the front; the answers should be put in boxes (whenever reasonable to do so). The lowest 2 scores among all the assignments for each student will be dropped.
