What to read?

A few eager students have asked the basic question: Which of the references listed for a particular week should we read?

For part I and probably also part II and III (under construction) the answer is the following:

In general, there is no right answer.  We will selectively choose different bits from a wide range of material and therefore the list of references is a superset of the material we will cover and may also consist of duplicates. However, a good strategy for finding the most the relevant and condensed material is to read the notes if available, and otherwise read the most recent paper.
