HOMEWORK SUMMARY REPORT
Chapter number: 7
Section number: 5
Exercise number: 1
Number of papers received: 3
Reviewing committee: kappa
List all participating committee members:
Randall McClelland, Brian Young
Author(s) of paper(s) chosen for publication: [Robinson and Zhang]
Comments: Two of the three papers had correct proofs that were easy to
follow. The third paper seemed like it needed just a couple more lines
until it was finished. The published paper was chosen on it's attention
to detail and good organization.
INSTRUCTOR'S COMMENT: None of the papers was entirely adequate, but
Robinson and Zhang are close. Nobody understood the hint, which called
for considering TWO vector fields, related by the 90-degree-rotation
operator defined on p. 341 (which is in Sec. 7.2, not 6.2 -- that's a typo
in the book). This problem is essentially the same as Worked Problem 4 in
Chapter 6 of the Schaum's Outline book.
