For week 1 (before 1st day of class) please read the 2 Socolow papers attached. You do not need to read the addenda etc., only the bulk of the papers (I.e. 4 pages of the science paper, and all of the scientific American paper).

The 2004 paper is somewhat technical, but is included for historical reasons. We will discuss details in class.
