All assignments are available in 4 formats, use whichever you like (or whichever your software likes).

- TeX
- Plain TeX (
*not*LaTeX) source of the problem set. Needs phyzzx macros. - DVI
- Device-independent TeX output. Recommended for screen viewing.
- Adobe Portable Document Format. Uses scalable fonts, so should work for both screen viewing and printing.
- PS
- Postscript. Uses scalable fonts, so should work for both screen viewing and printing.
- Source
- TeX source, DVI and all the eps pictures tarred together and gzipped. This format replaces separate TeX and DVI formats when eps pictures are present.
