**Update (5/2/10):**I have noticed a couple of bugs in the MI's list of consultation sessions regarding what is being covered in which session. The correct information is*here*.## Wednesday, 2 December 2009

### Minor Typo in Solution to Problem 7.6

Becky Shipley points out: "There is a minor typo in the solution to qu 6 from sheet 7- at the top of page 3 the initial condition should be y(0)=1 (not y(0)=0) to get C_2 and hence eqn (6)."

I don't have the latex file for that solution (just the .pdf), so I am announcing the correction here rather than updating the file.

### Minor Correction to Lecture Notes

I made a slight correction to the printed lecture notes in the nonlinear oscillator discussion from today. As I mentioned today in lecture, what I wrote on the board is correct, but I had forgotten to change it in the lectures notes when I was making my compiled corrections in September.

### 8 May consultation session in MI (SR2)

Tomorrow's consultation session is still at 3pm, but we have changed rooms. We will be in SR2 in the MI.

## Friday, 10 April 2009

### Consultation Sessions

I will be running three consultation sessions for C6.3a:

They will start on Friday at 3pm during weeks 1--3. The first two will last one hour and will take place in my office (DH 2). The one during third week will last from 3pm--5pm and will take place in L1 in the main building. This third consultation session will be a 'revision lecture' to cover the problems and solutions from the June 2008 exam. Note that I lectured this course last year, so I wrote the 4 questions in last year's exam. (The ones from 2007 and before were written by other people.)
