Anki decks by LW users

Added Fe­bru­ary 2014: As I no longer have time to keep both posts up­dated, all fur­ther up­dates will be made to the ver­sion of this post hosted on my per­sonal blog.

In a re­cent post, Qiaochu Yuan noted that “var­i­ous mnemonic tech­niques like mem­ory palaces, along with spaced rep­e­ti­tion, seem to more or less solve the prob­lem of mem­o­riza­tion.” The list be­low is an at­tempt to com­pile all ex­ist­ing Anki decks cre­ated by Less Wrong users, in the hope that they will be of help to oth­ers in mem­o­riz­ing the cor­re­spond­ing ma­te­rial. (Anki is ar­guably the most pop­u­lar spaced rep­e­ti­tion soft­ware.) If you know of a deck not in­cluded here, please men­tion it in the com­ments sec­tion and I’ll add it to the list. Thanks!
