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 or Mathematica for your home works.

There are homework trays outside my office, appropriately marked. Please submit and pick up your papers there.
