Outline and Assignments
You need Acrobat
to download the assignments. You can get Acrobat for Mac
(as part of Netscape auto-installer found under INFORMATION ACCESS TOOLS)
or PC from university
servers, but it is preferable for you to get it directly from Adobe.
You are encouraged to use Matlab
for your home works.
There are homework trays outside my office, appropriately marked. Please
submit and pick up your papers there.
to download the answer sheets for past homeworks.
