### Course Work

There will be
- Problem sets, one every 2 or 3 weeks
- 2 exams, a midterm and a final
- A class presentation

Each part will carry approximately equal weight in the final grade.
That is, 1/4 for each exam, 1/4 for the sum of the homework, and
1/4 for the presentation.

The presentation will be on a topic of your choosing, in consultation
with me. I will provide a list of possible topics, though you need not
restrict yourself to this list. It will be your responsibility to
research your chosen topic and report something cogent about the
current state of knowledge on this subject to the class
in a 20 minute presentation.
