Homework resources and collaboration policy

         Important Note: As we often reuse problem set questions from previous years, covered by papers and webpages,  we expect the students not to copy, refer to, or look at the solutions in preparing their answers. Since this is a graduate class, we expect students to want to learn and not google for answers.  The purpose of problem sets in this class is to help you think about the material, not just give us the right answers. Therefore, please restrict attention to the books mentioned on the webpage when solving problems on the problem set. If you do happen to use other material, it must be acknowledged clearly with a citation on the submitted solution.


Late homework policy


Homework regrades policy

If you feel that we have made an error in grading your homework, please turn in your homework with a written explanation to Monica Hopes, and we will consider your request. Please note that regrading of a homework may cause your grade to go up or down.


Homework assignments


Final project

For project milestone, roughly half of the project work should be completed. A short, graded write-up will be required, and we will provide feedback.
