Although I have chosen several textbooks to accompany the course, the course is designed to be self-contained and much of the material is presented in the way that I was taught it. I learnt mathematical physics from many people at Cambridge University, but those whose lectures clearly influenced these notes are Alan Macfarlane, Stephen Siklos, and John Stewart. In places I have borrowed heavily from their presentations and so these notes are certainly not a wholly original effort. However, I have tried to synthesize the material in a useful and orderly way, and have contributed significant material where I felt that more clarity was needed. It is my hope that these notes will evolve into a better and better resource as time passes. Certainly there is much room for improvement, and I welcome any comments, criticisms, suggestions, or corrections.
Lectures will be posted here after they have been delivered in class. Other than the introduction, the notes will be in one file that increases is size as the course progresses. This is to keep the numbering of equations, sections, theorems, etc consistent throughout. I suggest you download the file after it has been updated after each class and then just print (if you like) the pages that are new. They should fit seamlessly with the rest of the notes. Please inform me of any problems.
You will need software for reading pdf files to open these. One example that is free and works on all platforms is Adobe Acrobat Reader.
