WARNING (2010): In the autumn of 2010 a malicious hack of the UVA astronomy web server resulted in the loss of all of the course materials (and backups) for this class, including the lecture notes, which were the product of 15 years of development by the author. Through painstaking and costly efforts, we are attempting to reconstruct what has been lost. You may find that many links and figures are missing. Use at your own risk. Please be patient while we work through this.

WARNING (2015): Another malicious hack of our webserver has resulted in our department web server being shut down for security reasons. Please be patient while these pages are migrated to a new server.
