Undergraduate Teaching


These pages collect lecture notes I have given at Edinburgh at various times, with the date of the most recent delivery of the course. For the three cosmology courses and the quantum mechanics lectures I wrote all the material entirely from scratch; but for the other courses I inherited existing material that I then changed to varying extents. I therefore owe a debt to various colleagues (who I shall not name, for fear of failing to make a complete list) for parts of the material here - but I take full responsibility for the notes in their present form.
