This page contains notes for current classes, seminars and talks. For more math notes (including the number theory textbook, class notes, math contest materials, etc.), see the notes page on my website. Some of the source code is available on github. (If it’s not, email me.) To compile the source you’ll need the LaTeX template files (see the readme for instructions).
Note that most of these are sketchy - use at your own risk. (*) means this is a talk I gave.
