Spring 2004 LBSC 796 Web page
A useful place to look if you want to see slides for a class that has not happened yet. This year's slides for similar topics will be different, but perhaps not markedly so. Note, however, that the topic presentation order may have changed. You may also want to check out Jimmy Lin's Web page for sections of LBSC 796/INFM 718R that he has taught.
