The following lecture notes are from the University of London Physics BSc and Astrophysics MSc and related courses in previous years, (eg. the MSci Physics and Phys/Astrophys EuroMasters degrees). Most are PDF files and some MS Word and PowerPoint files. Some of these degree course lecture notes may be incomplete or unavailable. More old lecture notes may become available here in the future.
