Lecture notes shared by students:
The lecture notes and other material provided in this section was compiled by students that nicely offered to share it with other students having taken the same or future editions of the course. The material is available to the course website because it might be helpful. However, it is by no means to be considered as a reference in terms of set of topics addressed in the course (and required to pass the exam), level of detail provided (and required to pass the exam), accuracy of information contained.
