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.

Geometry *
** Grading: ** Final (50%)+Midterm (25%)+Homework (25%)

** HW: ** Weekly homework assignments will be posted
