Here you can find some supplementary material for my Saas Fee 2014 Advanced Course on Weak Lensing. These lectures are aimed at research students just starting in cosmology, from theorists to observers. You can watch the videos of the first few lectures here. The other Saas Fee 2014 lectures being given here are by Luca Amendola, Roberto Trotta and Camille Bonvin. Huge thanks to Anais Rassat, Martin Kunz, Alexandre Refregier and Ruth Durrer for making everything run so smoothly.

Outline: 1. Overview of weak lensing 2. Shear power spectrum (derivation) 3. Shear tomography (qualitative) 4. Shear measurement 5. Intrinsic alignments 6. Photometric redshifts 7. Summary and outlook
