Questions

All chapter and exercise numbers refer to the version 11 of this book, unless stated otherwise. This sequence is the last (?) prepublication test run of the web e-textbook. Your active participation in improving the book is very much encouraged.

**PLACE AND TIMES:**

Howey S104, TR 09:35-10:55

**PREREQUISITES: **
A basic background in calculus, ordinary differential equations, classical,
quantum and
statistical mechanics. Weekly homework assignments require both analytic
and numerical work, so familiarity with a programming language is a
necessity.

**TEACHING METHOD: **Two lectures
and a homework problem set per week.

**EVALUATION METHOD: **
Weekly homework assignments and a **term project**
individually tailored to student's level and research interests.
For inspiration, consult
ChaosBook.org/projects.
Grades will be determined from the homework (60%) and the
term project (40%) which takes the place of a final exam.

**PROBLEM SETS:**
Please deliver solutions to problem sets by Tuesday, at the
lecture, or place them in Predrag's mailbox.

**TEACHING ASSISTANT:**
Rytis Paskauskas,
gte203x at prism.gatech.edu,
Howey W503,
Phone: 404/384-9407
