The mailing lists can/should be used as a discussion forum by all participants.
I will send all announcements to both mailing lists. The messages of
interest to only one group will not be so many to become annoying.
The goal of the course is to give you experience with independent
research, and to help you prepare for the project prelim (description not updated yet).
The class time will be spent in a variety of ways:
- lectures on research strategy/writing/critical reading/etc
- presentations by you
- one-on-one meetings, working in small groups
- "standard" lectures (no more than 1h, no more than a few) on
topics of common interest
How to find what you need on this web site: course materials written by me are under Handouts, links to other materials (e.g. tutorials) are under Resources. The list of project papers are under 539 Projects and 518 Projects.
Who is this class for?
This is a project class, intended
for PhD students in the Statistics Department who are preparing for
their Preliminary Examination in Statistical Learning and Stochastic Modeling.
The grade in this class is based on effort on project and project
presentation (85%) and participation and timeliness in
attaining intermediate project goals (15%).
