Instructor and Venue

In-person lectures will take place in Nicolls 1, Mondays and Thursdays at 10:30 am. On-line synchronous presence can be achieved using this Microsoft Teams meeting room. Synchronous attendance however is not required since the lectures will be recorded and made available on this Web site. Efforts will be made to make the lectures available electronically in the same day.

The course structure will not change in the event of a new COVID-19 lockdown, except that all the in-person activities will cease. In other words, students registered in the in-person version of the course will effectively move to the on-line version.

The instructor is Stefan Bruda (email: stefan (at) bruda (dot) ca; telephone: 822-9600 x2374; office: Johnson 114B).

My office hours will be established early in the term in consultation with all my students. When this happens the information will appear here.

In-person consultations will happen as usual in my office. A Microsoft Teams meeting will be available during office hours for people attending the course on-line; watch this space for the coordinates.

Outside office hours I will be happy to answer your questions by email. I try to respond to all the emails received within 24 hours. In-person meetings are also possible, feel free to bother me each time you get hold of me, or if that proves impossible email me to establish an appointment.
