  • Can I get a PDF of this book?

    No, our contract with MIT Press forbids distribution of too easily copied electronic formats of the book.

  • Why are you using HTML format for the drafts?

    This format is a sort of weak DRM required by our contract with MIT Press. It's intended to discourage unauthorized copying/editing of the book.

  • What is the best way to print the HTML format?
  • Printing seems to work best printing directly from the browser, using Chrome. Other browsers do not work as well.

  • When will the book come out?

    It's difficult to predict. MIT Press is currently preparing the book for printing. Please contact us if you are interested in using the textbook for course materials in the short term; we will put you in contact with MIT Press.

If you notice any typos (besides the known issues listed below) or have suggestions for exercises to add to the website, do not hesitate to contact any of the authors directly by e-mail: Ian (<lastname.firstname>@gmail.com), Yoshua (<firstname>.<lastname>@umontreal.ca), Aaron (<firstname>.<lastname>@gmail.com). The book itself is now complete and we are not currently making revisions beyond correcting any minor errors that remain.

Known issues: In outdated versions of the Edge browser, the "does not equal" sign sometimes appears as the "equals" sign. This may be resolved by updating to the latest version.
