At the research frontier
Intended learning outcomes
After the course, the student should be able to:
· know the essential theoretical tools to cope with Networked and Multi-Agent Systems
· know the established problems and results in the area
· develop a research project and give presentations in the area
· contribute to the research frontier in the area
Literature and preparations
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- EXA1 - Examination, 7.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Other requirements for final grade
Passing Grade on homeworks, presentation and exam.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
