Below are the .pdf version of the slides I use to teach various courses at Seattle University. Most, but not all slides are provided for each course. The slides are not intended to be stand-alone. Errors and omissions may be present. The lecture numbers do not necessarily correspond to a lecture period. The courses are a quarter in duration (not semester).

Please contact me if you wish to use these slides.
