The lec­ture notes on this page (see below) cov­er all or parts of classes I taught where these notes were either handed out to stu­dents as sup­ple­ment­ary read­ing mater­i­al or simply made for my own con­veni­ence when teach­ing a paper. They have, how­ever, been edited to add ample expos­i­tion since the ori­gin­al talk notes were largely just equa­tions after equa­tions. Some may be updated/​improved over time while oth­ers may only be a first draft; the latest ver­sions of these notes will be avail­able on this page for any­one inter­ested in using them for either ref­er­ence or learn­ing.

You may notice that older notes have been laid out dif­fer­ently. New­er ones use my LaTeX lecture class and have a more con­sist­ent tone. The lecture class is avail­able for free on Git­hub if you wish to use it your­self; if you wish to help devel­op it, please feel free to fork it or just send me an e‑mail with your sug­ges­tions.

Gen­er­al Relativ­ity and X‑ray dif­frac­tion by crys­tals

Unless oth­er­wise stated these notes were all writ­ten based on lec­tures delivered to post­gradu­ate classes. Ital­ics indic­ate pdf slides. Not all these cov­er an entire course or paper; most cov­er select parts of a lar­ger course. As a res­ult of this they are arranged by top­ic and it is left to the read­er to organ­ise them into fields by con­veni­ence and/​or neces­sity.

Thoughts, cri­ti­cisms and sug­ges­tions for improve­ment are always wel­come. Please feel free to get in touch with me via e‑mail any­time. Thor­ough spellcheck­ing has not been per­formed on some of these notes so if you spot minor errors too (and have the time and inclin­a­tion) please let me know.

Have a nice day.
