## Messages

• IMPORTANT: New exams have been added to the Previous Exams section. However, when solving these, be aware that the curriculum has changed and that some exercises may not be covered by the current curriculum.
• We will solve exam problems on Thu, April 20, and Tue, April 25, starting with the regular exam, 2016, which can be found from last year's course.
• There will be no lectures or exercise session on Tuesday, March 7 and Thursday, March 9! To make up for this, there will be an extra lecture on Tuesday, February 28 in R30 at 15:15-17:00, replacing the exercise session.
• The first lecture will take place in R30 on Tuesday, January 10.
• The first exercise session take place in R30 on Tuesday, January 17.
