• There will be 5 collection times during the lectures
• on Friday 15th Nov
• on Friday 22nd Nov
• on Friday 29th Nov
• the last lecture during 2-6th Dec week
• the first lecture of the Hilary term
• You should submit at least 2 sets at each collection time. Submission in advance is possible, order of submissions of different sets is your choice.

• Each set is worth at least 10 points.
• *-subtasks can give you extra points above 10. In principle, they are not required to hit 10 but can facilitate this goal. *-subtasks are definitely not the type of questions that you can get during exam.
• Normal subtasks are good examples of what you can get on the exam.
• The marks of 5 best tests are only taken into account. So you can make only the half of the exercises and still be able to get the highest score.
• The maximal possible score you can get is 50 points. If you get more than 50 based on 5 best marks, then we will mark you 50.
• The score is divided by 10. This normalized number will constitute 10% of MA3443 score and 5% of (MA3443+MA3444) combined score

IMPORTANT: if the question asks to explicitly compute some quantity (e.g. find C_p/C_v), please PROVIDE THE ANSWER FIRST, and only then proceed to the derivation. If the answer is wrong then the mark for such computation is 0, even if your derivation is logically correct but a mechanical mistake is present. If the answer is correct, the derivation will be an important part of the task assessment.

During preparation of this homework I partially used exercises from
• K.Huang "Introduction to Statistical Physics"
• D.A.R. Dalvit, J. Frastai, I.D. Lawrie "Problems on statistical mechanics"
• P.Landsberg (ed.) "Problems in thermodynamics and statistical physics"
You might be interested to consult these books for extra exercises. Exercises in these books might be partially used as a source for examination tasks.
