Lecture Notes

Note that in the interests of placing the subject in a larger mathematical context, I will sometimes discuss mathematical objects which might be unfamiliar to you and give a general picture rather than a precise description. Please don't worry about this: the material is there for the purpose of exposure to mathematical culture and I won't test you on it or expect you to understand it in full. There are errors in these notes that were caught during lectures.
