If you have any questions concerning the lectures or assignments please contact (if possible by email):

All students are required to participate in the exercise classes. Every week, there will be an assignment sheet that will be handed out one week in advance. This sheet has to be prepared by every student and will be discussed in class. There are two different types of assignments: questions of understanding and programming assignments. The programming assignments can be solved in small groups of up to three students and must be sent in before the respective deadline. Prerequisites for a written exam and a 'Schein' is fulfillment of the following criteria:

The exam will be written. For the 'Schein', you have to write the exam as well. The time and date of the exam will be announced later in the course of the semester.

A general reminder: In accordance with the examination rules, we offer each student exactly one examination date (oral or written) each term. The registration for a follow-up examination is only possible in the next term (i.e. after 6 months). As soon as a student has registered for an exam, either by using the LSF for written exams or by filling in the information on an examination list for oral exams (or filling out a registration form), this is counted as the agreed examination date. If it is cancelled, the rule above applies.
