הבהרה לגבי תרגיל בית 5
בשאלה 2ב נשאלתם לגבי מטריצות משולשות תחתונות בסיסיות.
להזכירכם, הכוונה היא למטריצות משולשות תחתונות שאיברי האלכסון בהן שווים כולם ל-1.
אין להתבלבל עם "מטריצות בסיסיות", שהן מקרה פרטי בו רק אחד מהאיברים מתחת לאלכסון שונה מאפס.

כמו כן בשאלה 3א+ב יש להתייחס לפירוק ללא פרמוטציה.

Electronic HW - Change in HW submission policy
Dear students,

For the sake of the environment and in the name of modernity, it has been decided to transfer from homework submission in paper to electronic submission. We also believe it will make it easier for you, as you won't have to print your works (that most of you write with a computer anyway), and go all the way to the course cell for submission.

The course information document under syllabus is corrected accordingly.

Regards,
The course staff

תרגול מבוא לשתי קבוצות התרגול ביום שני
סטודנטים יקרים,

בשל העובדה שהתרגול הראשון ביום שני יתקיים לפני ההרצאה הראשונה, יועבר בתרגול זה מבוא שיכלול חזרה על נושאים בחדו"א והכרות קצרה עם סביבת מטלב. סטודנטים *משתי קבוצות התרגול* מוזמנים להגיע. מבוא זה לא יועבר ביום רביעי. החומר שיכוסה בתרגול זה נמצא באתר הקורס.
ביום רביעי נתחיל את חומר הקורס עם תרגול מספר 1, שיתווסף לאתר בקרוב.

בברכה,
צוות הקורס
