Homeworks are to be done and handed in individually.

However, to make sure each student understands the concepts, solutions must be written independently and should reflect your understanding of the subject matter at the time of writing. Copying solutions, using solutions from previous years, having someone else type or dictate any part of the solution manual or using publicly available solutions (from the Internet) are not allowed.
  
  
=== Collaboration Policy ===
 
Collaboration on homework assignments is encouraged. You may consult outside reference materials, other students, the TA, or the instructors.  Use of solutions from previous years in the course or from other external sources is not allowed.  All solutions that are handed should reflect your understanding of the subject matter at the time of writing.
