Due September 19, 2003

Problem sets are due on Friday at the beginning of class. This is a short, introductory problem set. Collaboration is strongly encouraged: you will learn a great deal from working with your fellow students. You must write up your own solutions, and give proper academic credit to your collaborators.

- From Bak and Newmann, Chapter 1: Problems 4, 5, and 10.
- From Needham, Chapter 1: Problems 1, 2, and 4. (See the other side of this sheet.)
- Optional extra credit: Bak and Newman, Chapter 1, Problems 11 and 12.
