The lab assignments originated with me (JN), but Wilbert Heeringa
added a lot (ca. 2000-2002). Mik van Es revised them, adding
questions to link the labs to the theoretical material better (2008).
Tamás Bíró took a further pass, also making
Material (in English). This site traces the different examples in
the Moore and McCabe textbook through with various calculations and
graphics. Helps in understanding the material.
