ECE 585 Homework Assignments Spring 2005

Both drill HW problems and to-be-graded HW problems are assigned. Do not hand in the drill problems for grading, but do work them to gain familiarity with basic concepts. Drill problem answers are provided in the Homework Help on the home page.

Each to-be-graded HW set is due on the indicated date. Late homeworks will not be accepted regardless of reason. Problem numbers are from "Microwave Engineering," 3/e, David M. Pozar. Solutions to these problems and some drill problems (PDF documents) will be posted through the links in the table below.

HW 3A solutions (etc.) are for on-campus students who have been provided a special password. These are identical to HW 3B solutions for off-campus students, except that the standard password is used. This allows solutions to be posted for on-campus students shortly after their work is turned in.

All problem solutions should be written out by hand and submitted to the instructor at the start of class due date. It is very important that you work all drill problems and all graded HW problems.
