Homework assignments and solutions:

Homeworks are usually assigned (i.e. posted here) on Tuesdays and due at 5:00 pm on Tuesday of the following week. Please deliver them to the office of the grader listed on the assignment, sliding them under the office door if the office is locked. You can, of course, turn in the homework any time before the deadline, but note that NO LATE HOMEWORK IS ACCEPTED! If you cannot come to the PRB on the due date, please hand the homework in early. In case of emergency (illness etc.) when you anticipate that you will not be able to finish the homework in time, you must send me an email or call me BEFORE the due date so that alternate arrangements can be made. No homework nor excuses will be accepted after the due date. (Solutions are password protected, they are for the use of OSU students and faculty only, please write to me if you belong to that group and are interested in accessing them.)
