MX4023: PROJECT (2017-2018)

Last modified: 26 Feb 2018 20:11


Course Overview

The 4th year project is a good opportunity to do some research in an area of mathematics which is not covered in any other course. A choice of project topics will be made available to students before the start of the semester. Students will be expected to have regular meetings with their project supervisor. A written report should be submitted at the end of the course, with a presentation taking place shortly afterwards. Students should be able to demonstrate in the project that they have a good understanding of the topic they covered, often through working out examples.

Course Description

Upon registration for the course, the student will be asked to see the course coordinator, who will normally have a list of topics for students to choose from. The course coordinator will discuss preferences with the student and then assign a topic and a supervisor. Requests to work on a certain topic of the student's own choice are acceptable, but this request will only be granted if the topic is regarded as appropriate and if proper supervision is conveniently available.
