Course Schedule and Problem Sets

The tentative schedule for the course is given below. I will update the schedule as necessary as the semester goes on.

Remember that the videos listed for each day should be watched before the meeting in order to understand that day's problem set. You can access the videos either from the calendar or from the Videos and lecture notes page. NB: all videos were produced by Øyvind Solberg and obtained from the 2020 course page for MA3203.
