Sage

For 2 points: Ch. 7: 5, 8, 10, 16
For 3 points: Ch. 7: 7, 12, 15, 17
Extra problem for 2 pts: Compute the class group of Q(√d) for
one value of d in {74, 101, 167}
Extra problem for 3 pts:
Give one nontrivial solution of the Pell equation for
one value of d in {31, 43, 46, 94}.
Show us also how you find such a solution.
Do all calculations by hand and make sure that you show us that you understand the techniques you learned in
class. Just giving a solution and verifying it will not give you three points.
For this week you may
vote
again on which problems you would like to have discussed in class.

 This week there is a page of exercises and instructions [pdf]
to work on using Sage, and for convenience a text file to copy for exercise 4.
You can work in pairs if you want. The
worksheet
that we ran through
in class is also available.
