2020/21, Fall semester
Time, location: Wednesdays, 16:15, online course
Lecturer: Gergely Zaránd
Language: English
Requirements and grading:
There are sevaral ways to get a grade and complete the course.
1. Oral exam
2. Problem solving
You can obtain a grade through problem solving in case you missed less than 3 lectures.

You recieve 2 problem sets,

You can select problems from each set to collect 50 points at maximum (i.e. max. 100 points),

To pass you need to reach 20 points in each set, and at least 50 points,

For 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 eachother, but I request independent work. You may help eachother but you are not allowed to copy.

Solutions (preferably handwritten) are supposed to be handed in via Teams.
Deadlines will be specified later, together with problem sets.
Term paper:
Instead of problem solving you can pass by handing in a 1620 page long term paper, too. The term paper is supposed to start with a 810 pages introduction, putting your subject into context and revising the relevant material of the course, and the last 810 pages are supposed to discuss a handout (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.
