E62/MS&E111 Readings
Course notes
Our course notes cover most of the material from the lectures. When reading these notes, students should focus on understanding problem formulations, concepts, and geometric intuition. For each mathematical result, a student should be able to draw diagrams to illustrate why the result ought to be true. Students are not required to read or write formal mathematical proofs, though, for completeness, proofs are provided in the notes.
