In this course we will be reading approximately 25 papers ranging from historical papers to ones on new techniques. Students are expected to have completed the assigned readings before attending class and actively participate in discussions. Students are encouraged to form groups to discuss papers before class.

To facilitate great class discussions, students must submit reviews of selected papers before the lecture for which the paper is assigned. Late reviews will not be accepted. All reviews are due at the start of class - bring a printed copy to class.

The review should be 20 to 40 lines (maximum 3200 characters) with.

  1. a short paragraph summarizing the problem attacked or goal of the paper,
  2. a short paragraph summarizing the paper's methods (if any) and results, and
  3. a short paragraph giving your opinion of what is good and bad about the paper.

Reviews will be graded on a scale of Excellent (10 points), Satisfactory (7 points), and Unsatisfactory (4 points). Reviews that are too long will automatically receive an Unsatisfactory grade.

Students are encouraged to discuss the papers before writing their reviews, but each student must write their own independent review. Reading another student's review prior to submitting your own constitutes academic misconduct.
