  1. Oscillations

Classification of problems :

Codes:
Green : If you can't do these, you are in trouble. Go study hard!
Black : You may do these for practice; at least do the underlined ones.
Blue : These will extend your knowledge beyond what is given in the text or lecture.
Red : You may do these for challenge. Try especially the underlined ones.
Read (and understand) the "Pitfall Prevention"s in the margins of the book.
It is also a good idea to read the examples, since they are already solved...
