On Thursday we commemorate the 612th anniversary of the Universität Leipzig by our Dies Academicus. There will be no lectures on that occasion (i.e. in particular no TP1 lecture). Rather, we encourage everyone to take a look at one of the many special lectures that are delivered on that occasion.1)
The question time on 26 November will be conducted only in the
(with access code 261377).
There are solutions available now for problem set 5.
There are solutions available now for problems 4.1–4.4 and 4.6.
Upon preparing the solutions of the exercise sheet I found and corrected a few more typos, and I decided to adapt the ladder problem.
Based on the feedback in the question hours I corrected typos, added some clarification/explanation (in particular a photo in Ex 4.1), and I revised the last part of Ex. 4.2 in order to guide you towards the important conceptual questions and avoid that you get stuck in unduly lengthy calculations.
I prepared the solutions for problem set 3. Forces and Vector Spaces.
The new problem set is outlined on 4. Mechanical Stability and Coordinates and also available as PDF file.
So far there has been no proofreading. Hence, there might be small changes coming up. Please post you pertinent observations in the discussion fields.
Update: Exercise 4.4 a) is not mandatory any more. Also the sheet now says the correct due date.
The discussion pages for Problem 3.1 — 3.7 are online.
The new problem set is outlined on 3. Forces and Vector Spaces. The PDF-file for the problem set, and discussion pages with comment fields will appear shortly.
The Moodle page is open for homework submissions now. We are still fighting to add a poll to the submission process. This will appear now for next weeks submissions.
The lecture today and the Question Time in the forthcoming weeks will take place in the Kleiner Hörsaal.
The self-test exercises are online. Their solutions will follow soon.
This week we will do exercises in the class rooms:
These time slots will also be kept for the seminars in the forthcoming weeks, with additional options preferentially on Tuesday or Thursday at 9am (these are the times where I know for sure that we will find rooms!).
Please communicate this request also to the other participants of the course.
So far about 1/3 of the participants ist not yet registered in Moddle!
On the Moodle pages I offer multiple time slots for seminars. Please carefully read the instructions in the Announcement Section of the Moodle course page, and make sure to coordinate your vote with your peers. In the lecture on Tuesday we will select the time slots for the groups based on your votes.
The Moodle pages for the course are online now. To speed up the procedure I allow for self registration. Till October 24 you can register with the course enrollment key TP1_IPSP_registration2021.
We will meet for our first lecture
on Tuesday, 12 October at 1pm in kleiner Hörsaal
PS: The computer center still did not update the Moodle course. Luckily, we do not need it yet, and I will make sure this is settled by the time it is needed…
There still is administrative work needed for the new Moodle course. As soon as these steps are taken by the administrators I will enroll you, and announce it here on the wiki.
PS: I appended a discussion field “Administrative Problems” at the end of the entrance page. Please use this form to report problems with access to resources. This will substantially increase the probability that your request will not be lost in my university email jungle.
