It doesn't cover everything we're going to talk about, but it does cover the Fundamental Theorem of Finance, which will be a big part of Wednesday's lecture.

I'll try to have some lecture notes up by Tuesday.

UPDATE: It turns out that Dybvig and Ross's chapter on "Arbitrage, State Prices and Portfolio Theory" from the Handbook of the Economics of Finance is also available online, here:
