The links on this page are to background information which students taking
electronics courses (particularly PHY2028, PHY3128) may find helpful. The
descriptors used in the tables are explained at the bottom
of the page. Suggestions for new links, or reclassification of existing ones,
are very welcome - send them to CDHW.

The style descriptor for a document indicates its delivery mode:
|Tutorial||Continuous prose presentation with didactic structure
often including examples and exercises.
|Notes||Resembling a set of lecture notes.
|Informal||Using humour, analogy and cartoons to explain material.
including quantitative and mathematical analysis
|Reference||Lists of useful formulae, charts, data, etc.
The author descriptor facilitates identification of
other documents from the same source.
