Course Syllabus

Here is the Web Page URL to the syllabus. The syllabus does not mention the required course book information.

Course Book Information

Again, we will have two lecturers. Todd will make heavy use of the following course book. Devinder's current plan, is not to use the course book (these plans may, or may not, change). Before your order the course book, you may wish to wait until it is confirmed, that you have been officially accepted to the course. If you have questions as to if you are officially accepted, or even when you will be notified, please contact Student Support, at the following Web Page URL

Todd was planning to use an earlier version of the same course book, however it is now 4 years old. So we will use the new version, of the same course book, which was released recently, on December 22nd, 2014. The course book information follows. It is very, very important to order the new 2nd edition (NOT the old edition). The new 2nd edition information is found below.

If you live somewhere other than Sweden (and even more so other than EC), it becomes more urgent to order the course book right away. It may take an extra week or two for internationally shipping. It is recommended that you order the course book from one of the following places (or some other major book store), which will obtain it soon after it is released. All of these companies will allow you to order online and then they will ship it to you. The following price and shipping information is current, as of January 9th.
