MA4492: Project

MA 4492: Project

Back to my homepage

MA4491/4492 is an optional module for students in their final year that offers some research experience in the shape of a half-year or a full-year project. Feel free to contact me (or any other staff member of School of Maths, to that matter) about topics for final year projects; I think that solving some problem as a project is more fun, but I can suggest reading–oriented projects as well. Your name can easily end up on the list below!
