Homeworks are typically assigned on Fridays, and are due the following Friday during class. The homeworks will
typically consist of some theoretical problems, and a numerical problem. **It is strongly encouraged that the
numerics problems are done using Matlab.** We will also give some support if you want to use C++ or FORTRAN.
There won't be any support if you plan to use another programming language. An introduction to Matlab will be given
in the first discussion period.

Here are some useful links:

- An introduction to Matlab
- Chris Anderson's Matlab page (very useful !)
- An alternative is to use the free programming language Gnu Octave, which is very similar to Matlab (I have not tested this, but got this information from sevderal sources)

Every student has an account in the PIC Lab, which is in BH2817

Solutions: I will try to post solutions to the homeworks after they have been returned and graded. These will be just handwritten notes; there is no guarantee that they are correct, or that they represent the only (or best) way to solve the problems. If you think you found a mistake, please let me know!
