Week 6 Preparation Guide

Week 6 Preparation Guide

Please do the required reading before attempting problems. Not only does it contain the material you need for the week’s work, and more examples than in the lectures, it will remind you of the details that you have to keep in mind when attempting problems. You will solve problems faster if you read first.

Reading

Required: Textbook Chapter 11

Practice Problems

The goal of practice is for you to figure out how to get started on a solution and see it through to the end. To achieve this, you have to be prepared to go over the background reading and examples and then mess around with the ideas yourself to come up with steps that will lead to a solution. It will not be achieved if you just read solutions created by others.

The Review Set on Conditioning and Markov Chains is short. Please do all the problems in it.
