Requirements, Informations
2017/18, FALL SEMESTER
 
Time, location:  Wednesdays, 16:15-18:00, room F3M01 (seminar room); 
 
Lecturer:  Gergely Zaránd
 
Language: English
 
Requirements and grading:
 
There are sevaral ways to get a grade and complete the course.
 
Oral exam: 
 
Those, who have missed more than 2 lectures can obtain a grade by oral exam. Everyone gets two subjects on the exam.  
 
Problem solving:
 
You can obtain a grade through problem solving in case you missed less than 3 lectures.
 
You will recieve 2 problem sets.
You can select problems from each set to collect 50 points at maximum (i.e. max. 100 points).
To pass (grade 2) you need to reach 50%, for grade 3 you need  60%, for grade 4 you need to reach  70%, and for grade 5, you must score above  80%.
You may discuss with the others (or with me), give hints to each-other, but I request independent work. You may help each-other but you are not allowed to copy 
 
Deadlines will be specified in the problem sets.  
 
Term paper: 
 
Instead of problem solving you can pass by handing in a 15 page long term paper, too. The term paper is supposed to start with a 8-10 pages introduction, putting your subject into context and revising the relevant material of the course, and the last 8-10  pages are supposed to discuss a hand-out (publication or book chapter). You do not need to understand all details of the handout, but the text must be clear and logical, reflecting your clear understanding. 
 
 
Handouts:  to be posted 
 
Problem sets: 
 
Handwritten solutions are allowed (even preferred). 
 
Handouts for term paper:  to be posted
