  • Assignment 9 has been updated with a few clarifications and typo fixes.
  • Assignment 8: in question 1, you will need to use g = 1 to reproduce the figure.
  • Assignment 6: UPDATED! The definition of sigma_+ is was missing a factor of 2.  There was also a mistake in problem 1, part f) which is now corrected in a very subtle way: I changed the notation in the rest of problem to be more intuitive.
  • Future tutorials have been cancelled due to lack in attendance.  Ian will have office hours by appointment.
  • You next assignment will require MATLAB (or some other numerical software package). Please see me as soon as possible if you cannot obtain access to MATLAB.
