Comment1 Tina F., October 1, 2012 at 6:50 a.m.:

Thank you Prof. Thorburn. Thank you MIT for the whole Open Course Ware iniciative. I'm from Brazil and I'd like to know if there's anyway I can watch the rest of the lectures of this course. I've tried videolectures.net and ocw.mit.edu but could only find Lectures 1, 2, 3 and 20. If they're not available I leave here a record of my interest in having them available and my sincere thanks.
