MIDTERM EXAM DUE DATE: MON OCT 25, ’04, 11 A.M. (LEO’S MAILBOX IN 207 GIANNINI) There are four questions, each is worth 25 points. Rules, regulations and advice a) You must work on this exam by yourself. You are not allowed to talk to anybody about it or exchange notes (not even old class notes) with anybody during the exam period. You can use your own notes, b) Please write up the answers neatly; otherwise points may be subtracted because your answer is not legible. c) Conciseness is a virtue of proofs. We will definitely take points off for excessively long proofs. It is just not fair to give somebody the same points for writing a proof covering three pages that other people did perfectly in four lines. ( None of the questions requires a proof that is long, so if your answer is getting really long and messy, you must be missing something ) d) Some questions, or parts of questions might require a little trick which might be difficult to see. So, please work on the easy questions, and the easy parts of questions that have hard parts, first and save the difficult questions for the end. Each question has a “theme,” so if you are having trouble with figuring out what the question is getting at, try a different part to see if you can pick up the theme. e) If some part of a question requires a metric, unless we specifically indicate otherwise, assume for that part of the question that it is the Pythagorian metric. Any email of the form: “which metric do you mean?” will be instantly destroyed. f) If you believe a question needs clarification, or even worse, is incorrect (I hope this doesn’t happen) send me an email. If I consider it appropriate to reply (cf (5)), I will reply to the whole class so everybody gets the same response. You might want to check your email periodically, just to see if there’s any correspondence. Please note well: i) last year, more than half the email questions I received were undecipherable, and had to be returned for further clarification. This was a *major* pain. Hence please follow the following simple instructions for submitting questions. ii)
