AMS131, Fall 2014, Section 01: Homeworks

We will refer to the Textbook as DG & S. Problem numbers are taken from the 4th Edition. The homework is a substanstial part of the course, you are expected to try the relative questions after each lecture.

Solutions to the even number questions are in the parentheses.
