student J.J. Jensen asks:

I will have to miss next weeks' lectures.  I will be at the Capri Institute for Relaxed Study, lecturing on my contributions to Theoretical Neuroscience.  Could you inform me of the work in will need to do to catch up for the lecture the week after, or direct me to any assigned homework? 

Predrag's answer:

That's cool, I wish it were me. The reading and problem sets are posted on the course schedule. You can submit the solutions by email, even though I vastly prefer old fashioned paper. If you fly back via Frankfurt Airport, consider this: for a price of 2 coffees and 1 croissant at the airport hotel you can get a Classic Illustrated.
