In Spring, we will continue through Chapter 14, then study Chapters 19-21,
and end with Chapters 15-17.

Note that the text is available as an e-book from the Math Library, but
you must be logged in with your UWNetID to see it (with no charge).

Also note that on the SpringerLink page for the book, the
"MyCopy Soft Cover Edition" link lets you order a hard copy for $24.99!

I will assume you have entered all important
