Academic Research Paper Instructions
As part of your course grading, you are required to submit an academic research paper during the semester. This exercise is meant to inculcate in you the research temperament and skills by carrying out a deep study of any research topic/area relevant to this course. You may choose any topic, of your interest, relevant to the course. Following are the details of academic research paper: requirements, deadlines and marks.
Academic Research Paper Requirements:
Following are the requirements for the academic research paper:
a) Paper Length
Your paper should not be less than 6 pages and not more than 12 pages.
b) Quality of Writing
The clarity and style of expression, the degree to which your paper obeys the rules to formal academic grammar, punctuation, spelling, formatting details like paragraph indentation and location of page breaks, are part of quality of writing. Write and edit your paper carefully for good organization, clear language with good spelling, punctuation, etc.
c) Format
Your academic research paper must have these sections: Abstract, Introduction, Related Work, Analysis and Conclusion. You must have to follow IEEE format strictly. The format is available in MSWORD format (Click here to download). No academic research paper will be accepted without mentioned format.
d) References
You must have to study published research papers (minimum 10). The references of published research papers and books are allowed. Any unauthorized materials’ references will not be acceptable.You can access Research Papers on your VULMS account using link [HEC Digital Library], Google Scholar and other online free research paper repositories.
Submission and Deadlines
Students are required to finalize and submit their academic research paper by July 24, 2020.Academic research paper must contain implementation results of the proposed research idea. Similarly, in case of a review paper the “Discussion” section must contain student’s comments/conclusions and future research agenda regarding the domain being reviewed.
Presentation
Students will be required to give presentation (through Skype/TeamViewer/Recordedpresentation etc.) of their academic research paper, well before finalterm examinations. The detailed schedule for the presentations will be communicated with the students later.Team
Students can do this assignment in groups but in that case their academic research paper must be of high quality justifying the efforts of all the members in the group.Warning: Write in your own words, do not copypaste. Plagiarism is not acceptable. In case plagiarism is found, you will be awarded zero marks. No excuse will be accepted in this regard.

Semester: Spring 2020
CS723: Probability and Stochastic Processes
Total Marks: 50Due Date:
June 03, 2020
Please read the following instructions carefully before submitting assignment:
It should be clear that your assignment will not get any credit if:
The assignment is submitted after due date.
The submitted assignment does not open or file is corrupt.
Solution is copied from any other source.
Objective
The objective of this assignment is to;
Improve your understanding about Probabilities and its applicationsAssignment Problem No.1
Let’s consider you are attempting a Quiz having 20 multiple choice questions (MCQs). Each MCQ have five (05) options (only one them is correct). Each MCQ carry one (01) marks and there is no negative marking. In order to pass the Quiz, you need to obtain at least seven(07) marks.
Scenario 1: You don’t have any previous knowledge/preparation for this quiz and just randomly guessing the correct option then…
Q 1: What is the probability of getting exactly 10 marks if you are randomly attempting the Quiz?
Q 2: What is the probability of getting FAILED if you are randomly attempting the Quiz?
Scenario 2: You have previous knowledge/preparation for this quiz and you can guess the correct option with probability of 0.7 then…
Q 1: What is the probability of getting exactly 15 marks?
Q 2: What is the probability of getting FAILED?Assignment Problem No.2
Let’s consider there are 50 students in class and the teacher have asked each student to select a secret number between 1 and 1000 (inclusive). What is the probability that atleast two student will choose a same number?Submission
You are required to submit your solution through LMS in MS Word format containing all the calculations you need to perform to find answers to given questions.
