A tutorial for the course

is available in two formats: Linux/Unix and Windows. Enjoy it.

We hope that you will enjoy the course.

Mathematical gems:

If you are fond of mathematical gems, here is a note about very special balls. It needs only some linear algebra, with a little knowledge about distances.
