Türkçe'deki notlarım aşağıdadır (my notes in Turkish are below).
notes here refers to course lecture notes or other
so-called expository writing. I may blame my calculus teacher (about
whom I wrote a blog
article) for first giving me the idea that the best teachers create
their own textbooks. I do not necessarily agree with this any more, at
least not in all cases; but the fact remains that, in teaching a course,
I am usually not satisfied to follow anybody's textbook but my own.
Expository writing may be based on historical
research. It is possible that mathematical research—the
discovery of new theorems—may result; I cite my paper, monograph on Euclid's number theory,
arguing for a (more or less) new and (I think) better way of
understanding this theory.
