January 24, 2006 Physics 681-481; CS 483: Assignment #1 (please hand in after the lecture, Thursday, February 2) These assignments (which will appear every other week) have three purposes. They explore points not covered in the lectures or lecture notes; they give you practice manipu- lating the formalism developed in the lectures and the notes (in the case of this assignment, Chapter 1); and they give you an opportunity to produce some clear technical writing. In every case after you’ve done the analysis to answer the questions you should write a brief essay reporting the results of that analysis at the expository level of the lecture notes — i.e. your report should be presented in sentences, organized into paragraphs, and mathematical details that competent readers can construct for themselves should be omitted. Your goal should be to explain the answers as clearly as you can to somebody else in the class who was puzzled by the question, but doesn’t need to be led by the hand through obvious details.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
