Courses, talks & workshops

This page summarizes my past teaching activities. I am afraid sometimes you will have to go digging on the old directory (and sorry, part of the CSS stylesheet is no longer in use). Please, also note that even if I started from scratch again, there may be broken links here and there.

Lectures notes and handouts that I wrote or co-authored are primarily aimed at students. They can be downloaded freely. Feel free to reuse them, I would appreciate if you could mention their origin in any appropriate way (website URL, citation, etc.).
