  1. Thanks Huiquan for getting these notes up so quickly. You have some incorrect (incomplete) information about what is due on Thursday (5/13) and also what was due yesterday (grace period through tomorrow). I would encourage you to consult the Schedule & Research Assignment, for clarity. You can always copy/paste the details from there (with quotations), and provide links. Thanks for editing this post!
