[Erik's Notes]
Policies
- There will be a weekly assignment containing a single problem,
up to 9 assignments in total.
- Problems are usually posted on this web page on Tuesdays and due
the next Monday, late at night.
- Solutions will also be posted here after the due date; for this
reason, late days are not allowed.
- You may skip any one problem, or we will ignore the problem with
the lowest grade. If you volunteered to scribe twice, we will ignore
the lowest two grades.
- The answers must be typeset in LaTeX. The answers must fit
in one page, or your solution will not be read. Use at least 10 pt
font and 1 inch margins. This rule is meant to prepare you for writing
research publications: one often has to explain great ideas in a very
limited number of pages.
- Submissions must be via email to
6897-ps#at#theory.csail.mit.edu and include a compiled
PDF attachment. The file name should follow the pattern:
[initial][last-name]-ps[number].pdf; for example, a solution to the
3rd problem set from John Doe should be named jdoe-ps3.pdf.
- Solutions do not need to include all calculations, trivial
details etc. Just prove to us that you found the solution, and you
understand it well.
- Problems will be graded on a 0-2 scale.
- 0 = You didn't get it. Filling one page to the brim
does not mean you can't get zero. Please don't write stuff you know
is wrong.
- 1 = Your solution was ultimately a good one, but the
write-up contained significant errors or omissions.
- 2 = (We think) you got it.
