COS 323 - Computing for the Physical and Social Sciences
Final ProjectOne-paragraph proposal due Friday, Dec 14
Final writeup due Tue, Jan 15
The final assignment for the class is to work on a project of your choice
involving the application of computational techniques to any problem in the
physical sciences, engineering, social science, economics, etc. The ideal
project would combine more than one of the computational algorithms we've
talked about with appropriate domain-specific models, careful analysis, and
an effective presentation of the results.
- The project should be done in groups of 2-4. If you have a good reason
for working alone (e.g., you would like to use the project as the basis for
independent work or a senior thesis), please contact the course instructor
to explain your case.
- The scope of the project need not be enormous, but it should be a
bit more ambitious than a regular assignment in the course. The amount of
work should be roughly proportional to the number of members in the group.
- Please submit, at
a one-paragraph description of your project. This is due Friday, December 14.
Only one person from each group should submit the proposal, and you should
include the names of all people in your group.
- The final projects will be due on Dean's date: Tuesday, January 15.
Please submit a description of your approach, your code, data, and analysis.
Please submit your final writeup
