I am pleased to have had the opportunity to revise the first version of this set of course notes for the stream temperature models. In some ways, there have been many changes in some ways the notes have stayed much the same. Generally, I was satisfied that the notes were both comprehensive and fairly easy to read. The exercises using SSTEMP have been upgraded to reflect advances in the software. Some additional material was added to better cover contemporary thremistors, and some, but not all, weak transitions and incomplete sentences have been corrected. A comprehensive index was added in an attempt to make these notes as useful as possible, and a few telling quotes have been added for spice. The goal has been to make this set of notes as stand-alone as possible and keep the file size down to something that is easily downloadable over the Internet today (March 2000)…
