Slides

We set up a set up slides which go with the 9 chapters in the principles part. There are two sets of slides for each of the first 5 chapters and one set each for chapters 6-9. Thus we get 14 sets in total, which can cover roughly 14 weeks of a lecture and thus should take you through a semester.

There are only introductory slides for the case studies, as these should be worked through hands on in class or as homework. The slides are pdf-files and thus can be used on any system
