Some old lecture notes

I typed these notes while I was a master student in Bordeaux. All possible mistakes are mine.


Here's a picture of me as an anteater (oso hormiguero):

Here are some of my photos from Central America.

Finally, here are some links that I have collected mostly for myself.

А frequently asked question: what is cadadr?
It is actually a rather random word, similar to "abracadabra", that came to my mind when I was looking for a domain name. It comes from a computer programming language named LISP, where (cadadr x) = (car (cdr (car (cdr x)))). It was not intended to sound like cadavre or anything like that and it is not my nickname either.
