**CS348b: Lecture Schedule**

Links to PDF files for each lecture's slides will be made available here a
day or so before or after the corresponding class meeting. Note, however, that
the slides are *not* self-contained: a fair number of topics in the course
will primarily be explained on the blackboard, so the slides are more useful to
refresh your memory of what was covered in class than to teach the topics in
the first place.
