Updated Version of Solution Set 3 Posted

I posted an updated version of solution set 3. The only change is that I gave an incorrect description of the degree distribution of the Watts–Strogatz model. You should take a look at the revised description. (The overall point is the same, but the WS model is z-regular only for rewiring probability p = 0. In the ER limit, the degree distribution is binomial.)

Slides from Monday of Week 6

I have tried to upload these slides to the course website on multiple occasions, and on the second case I double-checked it and it definitively worked right after the upload. Now it doesn't (and I am trying to upload it for a third time to see if I can get it to work), and I really don't know what it is going on.

In case the situation persists with the course-materials page, you can find it at this website.
