The exam (written) is in English only. The students may answer in Norwegian or English. To the exam you are allowed to bring one A4-sized sheet of yellow paper on which you may write whatever you want in advance. It must be pre-stamped at the Department of Mathematics (SB II, 7th floor), where empty sheets can be acquired. No other aids are permitted in the exam.
