Instructor and Venue

Lectures will take place Tuesdays and Thusrdays at 3 pm, in Hamilton 301. The lectures are also recorded and made available on this Web site. on a best-effort basis, meaning that if a recording fails then the only available alternative will be the actual lecture. I do not expect failures, but they failures may happen however occasionally.

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

Office hours

My office hours are Wednesdays and Fridays 10 am to 1 pm.

In-person meetings other than office hours 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.

Outside office hours I will be happy to answer your questions by email. In fact outside classes and meetings face to face email shall be the primary mean of communication; I am most easily reached by email should you have any questions or concerns outside the classroom, and once I send you an email I shall hereby consider that you read and acknowledged its content. I try to respond to all the emails within 24 hours.
