TCC Introduction to Schemes Schedule
Term 1

The following is an outline of the course, which will be updated as the course progresses.
This will change as the term progresses, and other references will probably be added. If you're only interested in the lectures on a particular topic, email me to confirm the date on which they will take place.

I will post the smart-board notes after each lecture.
