Due: Midnight, Mar 11
Purpose: The goal of this research task is to write a research proposal.
Choose a topic that you and your partner consider interesting in the context of this course.
You should have a shallow understanding of the topic and a desire to understand certain aspects in more depth. The best way to express this desire is to articulate your understanding and to phrase your remaining questions in this context. These questions tend to tell you which “tools” (mathematical techniques, implementation, measurements, etc) you will need to use to find answers.
Write up a one-page memo in journal-paper style that (0) motivates why the topic is interesting, (1) summarizes your current understanding of the topic, (2) states which aspects of the topic you would like to understand in depth, and (3) explains which tools you wish to use to explore the topic to gain the desired insight. Researchers tend to think of this memo as a proposal.
Submit your proposal as a PDF to your team’s assigned github repository.
