The Problem Sets are normally due on Thursdays at midnight. Each group will submit the written work as a single pdf through onCourse, and you may upload a Mathematica notebook if necessary. Check the Tentative Daily Syllabus for the schedule of all assignments. Each Problem Set will be posted here at least one week before the due date.

Remember to follow the Guidelines for Problem Sets in writing up your solutions.
