This page contains a list of the exercises in the text, including supplemental problems. It is mainly intended for use by people who are generating solutions to the exercises.

Guide to entries

Each entry in the table below contains the following information (the two-letter code in parenthesis is used in the table entry macros):

  • Exercise number (ex): the number of the exercise in the solutions manual. Items marked with a * appear in the printed version of the text.
  • Directory (di): the name of the subdirectory where the exercise appears. This does not appear in the table directly, but is used to create the link to the exercise.
  • Title (ti): a short descriptive title for the exercise.
  • Filename (fi): the base filename used for the exercise. Clicking on the link will take you to the LaTeX source code for the exercise (requires login).
  • Solution status (st): current status of the solutions. The following abbreviations are used:
    • C (complete) - complete solution is available
    • P (partial) - partial or preliminary solution is available
    • I (in progress) - solution is being written, but is not yet available
    • U (unavailable) - no solution is currently available
    • X (not planned) - no solution is planned
  • Author (au): initials for the author of the solutions
  • Comment (co): additional comments.

How to sign up to write a solution for an exercise:

  1. Find an exercise whose solution status is either unavailable (U) or partial (P)
  2. Edit the table and add your name to the 're' entry in the table
  3. Add the page to your watch list so that you can see when there is a change in status
  4. Wait until you are assigned a set of problems to work on (status will be changed to 'I', with your initials listed in the author column.
