2017/18, FALL SEMESTER
Time, location: Wednesdays, 16:15-18:00, room F3M01 (seminar room);
Lecturer: Gergely Zaránd
Requirements and grading:
There are sevaral ways to get a grade and complete the course.
Those, who have missed more than 2 lectures can obtain a grade by oral exam. Everyone gets two subjects on the exam.
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.
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
Handwritten solutions are allowed (even preferred).
Handouts for term paper: to be posted
