Teaching 2007-2008

All the course material from my teaching is available below in Powerpoint format. Apologies to my english speaking collegues, but the teaching is in french, and therefore so are the slides. Some of the presentations contain links to video files that can be downloaded from the numerical ressources section of the website. As for the numerical ressources, feel free to use the powerpoint material/animations if they are useful, but please don't forget to cite!
