Project report

  • The project should be written in Latex and have an extension of no more than 10 pages. Extra figures and derivations may be added in the appendix.

  • Make sure you structure the report well. You should at least have an introduction, a section where you explain what you did, a section for numerical experiments and a conclusion section.

  • Make clarity a priority. Make sure that you explain what is the point of your project and what conclusions you arrived to (and why or why not they make sense).

  • Hand in the project by sending a pdf file via email.
