Problem Sets

Problems are posted each Wednesday. They are due on the Friday 9 days later. Solutions are posted after the deadline.

Practical information

There will be a total of 12 problem sets, and you need to pass 8 of them in order to be eligible for the exam. Please contact your teaching assistant if you think you will have trouble meeting the minimum number of approved exercises. Exceptions will be made only under special circumstances.

You may upload your solutions (either typed in tex or a scanned copy) in your account at

If you have completed the required amount of exercises in an earlier year, you are automatically eligible to take the exam. You can check whether this is the case by asking at the department office (7th floor of SBII). Note that none of the teachers in the course have access to the system used to check this (FS). It is strongly recommended that you still do this year's exercises.
