ec443 worries me. the first 5 weeks seems to take for granted that you already know a first year graduate sequence in probability and statistics, either that, or they just expect me to learn everything in a cookbook way. i think it is too much material to work through and learn properly in 5 weeks, because it is a few textbooks worth.

this week especially was asymptotic analysis. my emotions range from joy at actually solving something, to plenty of hours just staring into blank space and trying to pick something that works from the many things in the textbooks which i haven't worked through and thus don't know well. analysis is always like that. and watching tv. it is not efficient at all.
