Anki decks by LessWrong users

In a recent LessWrong 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!

Please note that I have excluded some of my own Anki decks, which may not be of interest to members of the LessWrong community; all such decks may be found here.

Update (August 2019): The links to many of the decks below died in the intervening years, in part because AnkiWeb deletes shared decks with low download activity. Fortunately, I managed to regenerate almost all of these decks from my own master deck. To prevent further loss of content, I have now uploaded all of the extant decks to my server and added backup links to these archived versions.
