## Teaching

I teach courses in probability, statistics, stochastic processes, optimization, qeueing
networks and mathematical finance. Here are some incipient lecture notes in French

Here are some older lecture notes in English:
Note: These notes are not (and will never be) in their definitive form.

If however, you think that the .tex source might still be useful
to you, just drop me an email. You may use them, in the "Linux spirit".
