This is a highly interactive and demanding subject. Students will be required to choose a research / study topic in agreement with their adviser, decide on the key issues in that topic, and propose a set of relevant papers which they believe cover the most important points of the chosen topic. The adviser has to approve the topics and the paper selection. Students will have to be in close contact with the adviser in order to make headway through the selected materials. Students will be required to frequently meet and interact with the adviser, often for as many as 2 to 3 hours a week, and devote a substantial amount of time to further researching the selected material. Thus, only very motivated students (preferably, with previous research experience or with outstanding abilities) are advised to take this subject and always after consultation with a prospective adviser.
