Study some papers


  1. Spend at least 40 minutes (use a clock--no guessing) studying this paper. If you finish early, spend the remaining time following citations or investigating related topics. If you do not finish the paper, you can decide whether it warrants more of your time.

  2. Write some useful notes in some electronic format as you study these documents. (I will not ask to see your notes, but proper "studying" should include components of both reading and writing.)

  3. Also, spend at least 40 minutes studying chapter 4 of this book.

  4. Send an e-mail to the instructor stating "I spent the required amount of time studying the papers for assignment 2."
