There will be 3Ð5 written homeworks, released roughly every 2Ð3 weeks. I don't expect everyone to solve everything completely, but you should turn in at least a partial solution for each problem. This is a graduate special-topics class, so a few homework problems may be open!
Homework solutions should be typeset in LaTeX, converted to PDF, and submitted by email as an attachment. Groups of up to three students may submit joint solutions. You may use any source you like, but please cite every source that you use.
The majority of the course grade will be based on a two-part semester project. The format and requirements for the project are given on a separate page.
