Lectures 2006

You can find summary of the lectures and copies of the slides below. Copies of the slides can be downloaded only from within the HUT.FI domain.

If you are not located in the HUT network: you can for example login to the Computing Centre servers, download the files you want with a web browser (e.g. Lynx) and transfer the slides for viewing to where-ever you want. Or you can configure a ssh pipe to

I have given Edita permission to print the lecture notes for HUT students on request.

Notice: probably due to large picture files, there may be some problems to open/print the slides and/or make working handouts. I'll try to solve the problem (probably one has to e.g. reduce the resolution of some graphics).
