General information

This course is taught by Dr. Stefan Güttel. My office hour is Wednesday 14–15 in ATB 2.114. The teaching times are as follows: This is a 10 credit course.

Lab classes and tests

You will only need to attend one of the two lab classes on Friday. Please check your personal timetable to find out which class you should attend. Note that the capactity of the computing cluster is limited and hence you cannot attend another class than the indicated one.

Tests: There will be 4 one-hour tests, each with 2 functions to be written (so 8 problems in total). These tests take place during the lab classes in weeks 4-8 of the semester. In week 3 we will have a mock test. The first marked test will be in week 4. The results of the 6 best problems count 30% towards the final mark. The remaining 70% are coursework.


During the Easter break, a coursework project will be handed out. The deadline for submission via Blackboard will be Thursday, 10th of May 2018, at 13:00. More details to be announced.
