Each week, we will try to do approximly one section from this outline. Please do not be alarmed to discover that this outline changes from time to time. In particular, I'm not yet satisfied that this is either the correct order or that I can cover all the information contained within each section with only a 30 minute lecture. So it'll likely take longer than 26 weeks to cover all this stuff. As I progress, I will add more links for further study.
