## Typos in Chapter 2

**W**hen grading homeworks for my Monte Carlo graduate class, I found that my students had pointed out two typos in the exercises of Chapter 2 of “** Introducing Monte Carlo Methods with R**”.

– In Exercise 2.17, question d. should be “*d. Show that the maximum of is attained at .*“

– In Exercise 2.21, in item (ii), should be replaced by and question b. should be removed.

I am currently working on the solution manual. It should have been ready when the book came out (if only because it is an efficient way to chase typos down), but I lazily waited for those homeworks to be handed back to reduce my workload… So keep posted for further typos in Chapters 3, 6 and 7, since my students only covered those chapters.
