Suggested readings for Weeks 2 and 3

Here are some suggested readings for Weeks 2 and 3 of class.  Remember that I do not distribute my lecture notes.  Note also that you are responsible for all of the material on which I lecture, regardless of whether or not it is covered in these readings.  These readings are not required, but they are intended to cover everything that I talk about in our lectures (modulo the caution in the previous sentence).  All of them are available for free on line except for the book by Emily Bender, and you may be able to get that one for free, too, through your university.
