The assignments include both theoretical problems and computational
projects. Here are some guideline for doing the computation
(1) The program should be written in a relatively formal fashion, be easy to read, and contain comments of major steps;
(2) Please turn in a disk or email me all your programs and data files that are necessary to run your programs, including a simple README file.
(3) You are encouraged to discuss with other fellow students, but you need to finish and turn in your own project separately.
