This Wiki provides course materials and a discussion forum for the lecture courses that I give to Computer Science students in Oxford.

Some pages will contain course material, and I will protect those pages from editing, so that everyone can see the material as I presented it. But each protected page will have an associated discussion page, and you are welcome to add comments there, or to make additions to any of the other pages. To make edits, you will need to create an account for yourself, but anyone with an Oxford email address is welcome to do so.

Some older stuff:

And one piece of newer stuff:

Project ideas

  • A separate page has a list of projects that I'd currently like to supervise.
  • Another page has some older project ideas. Some of these have been done and the results are publicly available; others don't seem so relevant now as when I first suggested them.





Exam papers

Pages for tutors

Bona fide tutors should create an account, then send an e-mail to Mike, who will add them the the tutors group and give them access to the tutors' section of the wiki.


  • Notes about experiments with hardware hacking.
  • A rag-bag of mixed amusements and diversions.
  • A page of random links to curiosa of the internet.
  • Various tutorial notes written about specific problems.
  • Some tech tips of variable accuracy.
