Math. 656, Spring, 2004 Required Work
Work: The policy will be as in the fall. Namely, each student
will be required to complete at least one major project, that includes
both a written report and an in-class presentation. The students will discuss
with the instructor which projects are appropriate, and whether the project
can be a group project. For students working with me on their Ph.D.,
the project can be a chapter of their dissertation or a substantial report
on work done; in this case, an in-depth in-class presentation should
be given. The best reports will be significant in the sense that they will
be publishable or lead to publishable advances in the field.
I wish to emphasize this semester that the report
must have both a written and a presentation component.
