Lecture Notes

The following are PDF-format files of slides shown in class, which you can print out and use to take notes on in class. You will need a user name and password to access the files. E-mail dreger@seismo.berkeley.edu to get those, if you weren't at the first class meeting.

The notes become available before class to print out for note taking (bold links indicate that files are available). You need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open these files.

These notes are being updated and will be available the week before each lecture (links will be stale before then). Please be sure to check the day before class to see if there is a newer version
