2022/23 Fall semester
Time, location: Fridays, 14:15, room F3M01 (?)
Lecturers: Gergely Zaránd and Imre Varga
Language: English, but cnsulation, problem solutions and the oral exam may be in Hungarian
Requirements and grading:
There are three ways to get a grade and complete the course.
1. Oral exam
2. Problem solving
You can obtain a grade through problem solving in the following way:
We hand out 5 (sub)sets of problems.
You can select problems from each set to collect 20 points at maximum (i.e. max. 100 points).
To pass (grade 2) you need to collect at least 10 points from each subset.
Grading is as follows:
grade 2: 50%; for grade 3 you need 60%; for grade 4 you need to reach 70%; for grade 5, you must score above 80%.
You may discuss with the others or with the lecturers, give hints to each-other, but we request independent work. You may help each-other but you are not allowed to copy.
Deadlines will be specified later for each subset.
Solutions (preferably handwritten) are supposed to be handed in via Teams.
3. Term paper
You can pass by handing in a 16-20 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. 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 of all that is discussed in your term paper.
Problem set: Shall be posted via Teams.
Handouts for term paper (shall be posted via Teams, may be partly upgraded):
Lecture notes: Shall also be posted via Teams.
