  • The deadline for submitting solutions of Set 12 (online) is scheduled for Friday, April 24, 4:00pm.
  • The last lecture is scheduled for Monday, April 20. The last exercises classes are scheduled for April 22-24.
  • Please note that it is required that solutions to the homework sets are submitted online via ovsys. If you want feedback/comments, you should, in addition, hand them in at Matteland: box number 0613.
  • Note: the lecture on Thursday, February 6 (10:15-12:00) will take place in lecture hall S8, SBII.
  • Lecture on Monday 27/01 will be given by Adrian.
  • Note: You can deliver the exercises (before 10:30am on the indicated day) on the 3º floor of the central building, in an area called Matteland. The box number is 0613. If you want feedback on each exercise, write "want comments"/"ønsker retting", otherwise your TA will only write "godkjent"/"ikke godkjent".
  • Exercises are to be handed in and will be graded (godkjent / ikke godkjent). If you want feedback on each exercise, write "want comments"/"ønsker retting", otherwise your TA will only write "godkjent"/"ikke godkjent". The exercise sets are mandatory; you need to pass eight (8) out of a total of twelve (12) sets in order to take the exam. Of those 8 solution sets, 4 must be with respect to the exercise sets 1-6 and 4 must be with respect to the exercise sets 7-12. Note that to get an exercise set approved you are required to have solved correctly at least 70% (providing detailed arguments/computations) and made serious and substantial attempts at solving at least 90% of a given exercise set. Also, you are asked to pay attention to the quality of presentation, in particular, the correctness of mathematical notation and formalism.
