Math 198/CS199 Fall Semester 2016

NB: As noted, severe server errors and diskfailures in June 2013 have damaged this filetree. As it is being repaired and updated, any item that contains links has a number at the end. Since the link itself may point to an entire file tree, some of whose links are still broken. A 0 means that there are no levels of links that require checking. A 1 means that links down 1 level have been restored. Please report broken links below level 1.

The date at the top of a webpage indicates when it was last updated. In addition, there are web pages dating back a decade or so, which are difficult to update each semester. Check the date at the top left, and use caution.

Recall that right clicking a webpage permits you to see the code for it, and even copy it for your own use. Some of the webpages here are in pure HTML, the language of the web. These are easy to edit and require no ancillary files. Older ones are composed with a factory called asciiDoc and are therefore poor examples from which to learn HTML. The current hybrid of HTML and LaTeX (The Pudding) comes with a decorative picture, and are easier to maintain. To edit your personal copies of them you will will need some additional files you have to learn how to find. Ask on our Piazza.

This webtree is under permanent construction and changes frequently. So update (aka refresh, reload) your browser when you visit this website. Some of its pages require a MathML compliant webbrowser, such as Firefox. Those pages will probably not work correctly with Chrome, Safari, and the latest Internet Eplorer. You'll know if mathematical symbols are incorrectly rendered.
