Reading Assignment

Note: the 6.050J/2.110J notes, problem sets, and solutions, as well as several recommended resources, are in Portable Document Format (PDF). These may be viewed with Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you can download free if you do not already have it. If you are on Athena, the reader is already installed for you. If you are using Mac OS X, that operating system incorporates a PDF viewer so you do not need Acrobat Reader.
