The color coding corresponds to the level of difficulty / amount of work:

Easy (24 hours).
 The problem is a direct illustration of the syllabus and highlights a
particular aspect of the theory: the solution consists of a short text
with explanations, formulas, maybe an ASCII plot or sometimes a simple
modification of the JBONE applet.

Moderate (1 day).
 The problem deals with an extension of the syllabus or an application:
the solution combines all the steps, starting from the formulation of a
model, the analytical derivation of a numerical scheme, the implementation
of a program and finishing with a discussion of the simulation in the
JBONE applet.

Difficult (23 days).
 The problem describes an application from a neighbouring field that goes
beyond the scope of this course, but can be examined to open the scientific
horizon: a certain degree of independence and creativity are required to
outline a certain aspect, solve the equations and discuss the result.
