Homework Solutions (through Problem 91)

Quiz #1 Solutions

Quiz #2 Solutions


MARCH 12 – 12:40PM MST

As you are now aware the University is moving to limit face to face contact in an effort to practice social distancing in response to COVID-19. We will be following this mandate and will told classes via GoToMeeting. This includes cancellation of class Tuesday, March 17. Beginning Thursday, March 19 classes will be held online. The University will reassess the situation after April 6.

Prof. Guha will be live during the regularly scheduled time. Via GTM you can tune in and ask questions via chat or by microphone (if you have those capabilities). Each call will also be recorded and uploaded to a Dropbox folder for later viewing. Michael will also be holding office hours remotely. The same call information can be used.

Homework sets will still be due on Thursdays, consisting of any problems assigned the previous week. You can submit your homework sets as a pdf file on D2L (https://d2l.arizona.edu/d2l/home, and navigate to OPTI 595B) under the “Assignments” tab. Please get in touch with Prof. Guha and/or Michael via email if you want to discuss any of the advanced problems for your presentation at the end of the semester.
