Autumn and spring teaching

The work for the project and the writing of the project report will have a major role in bringing together material that you have mastered up to Year 3 and are mastering in Year 4.

It will consist of a sustained investigation of a mathematical topic at Masters' level. The project report will be typeset using TeX/LaTeX (mathematical document preparation system).

The use of mathematical typesetting, (mathematics-specific) information technology and databases and general research skills such as presentation of mathematical material to an audience, gathering information, usage of (electronic) scientific libraries will be taught and acquired during the project.
