Welcome on the web page of this lecture, which has been in English since 2014.



  • Lecture notes : version, build on a weekly basis or so …


  • Old french version of lecture notes :

version sep. 2013, with some missing parts …



  • List of articles available for review and oral presentation.

You are supposed to choose one of those, email me your choice (on a first arrived / first served basis). Alternatively, you could find an article (e.g. on google scholar) in link with the lecture, and of course email me about that. Then you will have to prepare 5 slides summing up the article, that you will present for 5 minutes.
