While I follow the order of topics in the book, I have (and use) my own set of notes for this class. I make it a point to resolve discrepancies between my notes and the book so that there are no conflicts. However, I go into much more detail on the more mathematical aspects of the course in my notes. I also endeavor to continually relate the mathematics to physical principles, so that we do not lose sight of what it all means.
