### ANNOUNCEMENTS

Project must be chosen by

**5:00pm on 9/14/20**.

**An IOP latex template file, with instructions, can be found at iopjnl2e.tar.gz**

Students must meet with me by

**5:00pm on 9/21/20**to discuss a reading list for their respective projects.

**A resource I find more useful than the arXiv for searching is inSpire.**

Students should have a preliminary outline for their project by

**10/02/20**.

Students should have a preliminary version of their manuscript by

**11/16/20**,

so that it can be reviewed before Thanksgiving.

Students should have a final version of their manuscript by

**12/09/20**(last day of class).

Final presentations for student projects will take place during

**12/14-18/20**.
