Term Papers: The Final Exam for this class consists of written Term Paper and an Oral Presentation on the Term Paper on the day of the Final. Students must do both the term paper and the oral presentation to be able to pass this course. Each student must choose a term paper subject before Friday April 5, 2013 . Please click here to see a list of suggested Term Papers. The term papers are due on the day of the Final Exam. Each term paper should be written in TeX/Latex format and they should be at least 10 pages long in paper format (draft RevTeX). On the day of the Final Exam each student registered in this class will give a 15 minute long oral presentation for the benefit of the rest of the class. I will arrange for the term papers to be printed into a single pdf file so that you can learn from each other's work.
