Reading for 01/24/16 Read Chapter 2.

There is another Matlab video (aimed at 262) that could be useful to watch.

**Homework #2** 2.1, 2.5 (in parts b and increase all N's by a factor of 10), 2.8/2.10 parts a and b (no computation yet) (random walks and polymers) Due 01/31/18 at 4pm.

- 2.1 may be worked out in class at least partially, but you must write it up nicely if so.
- 2.5 was developed when laptops where much less powerful; so increase all N's by a factor of 10 in parts b and c, and we should work on it in class Friday.
- Hint: use the rand function to pick a random number.

- 2.8/2.10 is the entitled "Polymers and Random Walks." Which number it is depends on the edition of the textbook. Only do parts a and b (no computation on this problem).
