Assignments are due every Wednesday, except for the first week, and until November 13. The problem sets will be listed here. Please note that the solutions to selected problems have been removed once the term ended.
Finding the right answer is not equivalent to solve a problem, and therefore your solution will be evaluated as a whole. Please, keep in mind while writing the assignments that I will not be with you when I will read it, so it must be complete.
Student Presentation or Software Project
The student presentations can be about any research paper in algebraic combinatorics, or chosen in a list of topics that will be given to you mid-October. For those who prefer the software project, your project could consist in implementing an algorithm from algebraic combinatorics into a programming language, writing a tutorial on how to use mathematical software to solve a combinatorial problem or contributing to a free software. Students having further ideas should talk to me about the project they have.
The presentations and projects can be done in teams of two students, but the project should be bigger (longer talk or broader software project).
