We will cover much of material of the chapters 1-4, but we are NOT going to follow the
book too closely, so taking notes during the lectures is a good idea. Still the book
is required in the sense that it will serve as a main refernce for the theory and
some homework problems.
Additional literature: Dirk Struik, Lectures on Classical Differential
