Lectures, Tutorials and Assessment


Lectures and tutorials

One two-hour lecture per week
The lecture series is intended to be self-contained and comprehensive in terms of the module requirements. However, there are a number of books on the subject that it may be useful to consult.

Tutorials will be held at least fortnightly, at times that will be arranged in the lectures. They serve two key purposes. First, they provide a forum for students to raise questions - either seeking clarification or elaboration - on topics that have been covered in the lectures. Second, problem sets will be handed out. Working these problems should facilitate understanding and also permit further discussion of the implications of some of the core module material.

Module Assessment

There is a compulsory 2.5-hour examination at the end of the module, forming 100% of the assessment
