Exercises

On this page you will find exercise sets and solution proposals.

In total, 12 exercise sheets will be provided. In order to get access to the exam, you should submit 8 approved exercise sheets (4 from the first part of the lecture, and 4 from the second part of the class). It is, however, strongly recommended that you complete all exercise sets.

Approvals from previous semesters

If you have fulfilled the exercise requirements a previous semester (in either of the courses TMA4130, TMA4125, or TMA4135, you do not have to do so again. If you want confirmation that you have a registered approval from previous semesters, you need to contact Studentservice.

Submissions: time and place

Exercises will be posted online on Mondays of the week that the corresponding topics are discussed in the lectures. Scripts are due online by 23:59 on Friday in the week after publication. You must submit your exercise set on ovsys. If you want comments on your mistakes, write so clearly on the paper.

For the exercises involving code, please hand in the code in a single file. You can use the following python template or ipynb template. If you use the ipynb template, please make sure that all required outputs are produced before uploading the file. If you use the python template, you need to include the output of the code, as exemplified in the template.
