Each enrolled student is allowed to propose up to three topics and the corresponding titles as well as two preferred dates. This list should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 8/26/22. The topics should not be strongly related to talks given previously by the student in any 730 course. All students are allowed to choose a topic that is either related to their research interests or a topic from the Nobel Prize list. All topics and dates will be assigned by 9/9/22, also to those who have not submitted a list with their preferences by then. Your presentation should follow the "Suggestions for Giving Talks" wherever you think that they are reasonable. You might also be stimulated by some TED Talks that are considered to be "The Best" or by "True Genius".
Learning outcomes: Upon successful completion of this course, the student should have improved her/his discussion, constructive criticism, and presentation skills.
No specific prerequisites.
