REQUIREMENTS FOR CREDIT
There will be one final exam in this course and I will distribute four problem sets. Moreover, you have to prepare a research proposal,
present it in the class and submit it in the final exam. In this research proposal you have to describe an idea that can be extended to
a research paper. The topic of the proposal must be related to the topics covered in this course. In this proposal you have to survey the
related literature and clarify the contribution of your idea to the literature. You should also indicate the methods that can be used in
the analysis and the possible results expected at the end of the analysis.
In your final course grade, the final exam will have a weight of 45%, problem sets will have a weight of 20%, and your research proposal
and its presentation will have the weight of 35%
