Homework and Project

Homework: There will be about 5 homework sets, they will count for 50% of the final grade. Homework solutions will be handed out on the day that the homework is due. Late homework will be heavily discounted. Duplicating a solution that someone else has written or providing solutions to be copied is not acceptable. If you do collaborate on homework, you must cite, in your written solution, your collaborators.

Scribing: Each student is responsible for scribing notes for 1-2 lectures during the quarter, which accounts for 10% of the final grade. The notes should be written in LaTeX using the provided template. The write-up should try to fill in any details skimmed over in lecture and provide proper references.

Project: There will be a term project, which accounts for 30% of the final grade. The project involves choosing a topic of your interest in area of communication networks, picking 2-3 major papers in the area, and understanding, critically evaluating, and possibly extending the research. You will need to write a project report and prepare a presentation in the final two weeks of classes. We provide a reading list, which contains potential topics and major recent papers that are relevant. This is aimed at giving you a starting point. You are more than welcome to suggest other research topics and relevant papers.
