**Lecture time:**Tuesday & Thursday 2–3:30pm**First lecture:**Tuesday, January 17, 2023.**Lecture room:**McCone 141.**Contact:**Email cs270-s23-staff@lists.eecs.berkeley.edu

**Scribing/grading (10%)**. Each student must either (co-)scribe one lecture or grade one problem in one problem set.**Homework (50%)**. See assignments page.**Final project, paper (40%)**. See project page.

Homework and final projects must be typeset in LaTeX. If you are not familiar with LaTeX, see this introduction. The lecture and assignment pages also have templates to get you started.

We expect to have 6 problem sets for the course, subject to the following policies:

- No late days. No extensions.
- Each problem set contributes the same amount to your final grade.
- Homework must be typeset in LaTeX; here is a template to start with.
- Solutions do not need to include all calculations, trivial details etc. Just prove that you found the solution, and that you understand it well.
- Homework is always due at 11:59pm on the due date.
- Collaboration to solve homework problems is allowed, but students must then write up the solutions on their own and list names of all collaborators at the beginning of the first page.
- You may read papers to help find solutions to problems, but they must be properly cited, and you must explain the solution in a way that demonstrates your understanding (a homework submission simply stating “this problem is solved in paper X” would receive no credit, for example).

There is no textbook for this class (we will rely on scribe notes).
