Below are the notes I took during lectures in Cambridge, as well as the example sheets. None of this is official.
Included as well are stripped-down versions (eg. definition-only; script-generated and doesn't necessarily make sense), example sheets, and the source code. The source code has to be compiled with
header.tex, and is also available on GitHub.
Note that the lecture notes are not reliable indicators for what was lectured in my year, or what will be lectured in your year, as I tend to change, add and remove contents from the notes after the lectures occur.

Please email any comments to email@example.com. Feel free to point out errors or unclear explanations, as well as general typographic suggestions. Even better, send a GitHub pull request.
Here I'd like to thank the lecturers who delivered the (usually) amazing lectures, and all of those who helpfully pointed out my mistakes and typos.
Note that the notes have been continuously modified since the lectures have taken place, and do not necessarily accurately reflect what the lecturer said or thought. In particular, all errors are (almost certainly) mine.
Frequently asked questions
What do you use to produce your notes?
The notes themselves are typset in LaTeX, and most diagrams are drawn with TikZ.
To type the notes, I
vim, and use the TeX Live distribution to compile the files. I tend to use mupdf to view the pdfs. Everything is version-controlled with
git and hosted on GitHub.
All of these are run on a linux system, and everything is installed via the package manager (in particular, don't ask me how to install
$SOFTWARE on Windows/OS X, since I have completely no idea).
Do you live TeX these notes?
I live TeX the words and equations. Simple diagrams are drawn in classes as well, but more complicated ones are usually done after lectures. There is usually some significant post-processing after lectures.
How much stuff have you got here?
There are currently
- 4265 pages of notes
- 204844 lines of source code
- 1610671 words in the source code
- 10610164 characters in the source code
How do I compile the tex files?
I assume you already have the appropriate compiler and packages installed (see question 1). The list of all packages needed can be found in
The recommended way to compile the source file is to download the source (labeled "src") from the notes page together with
header.tex. Put them in the same folder, and then compile the source file with your compiler. For the notes with images, you have to download the images from the GitHub repository and place them in a folder named
Alternatively, you can clone the GitHub repository by running
git clone https://github.com/dalcde/cam-notes. Then you can just navigate to the appropriate folder and compile. Note that the
header.tex is stored at the root folder and symlinked to every subfolder. Windows does not like this (technically, anything that is on an FAT or NTFS filesystem). You will have to manually replace the
header.tex in each subdirectory to the actual
