Syllabus, additional important information on the lecture, updated 02.04.2021
The exercises are organized via a moodle course which you have to register manually under Moodle plattform of UL
Please note that you have to register first for the module and afterwards for the specific module classes (lecture, exercise) within the module.
Registration starts on March 31th, 2021 at noon (12.00) and ends on April 7th, 2021 at 17.00.
Teachers cannot register students for module (classes).
In class teaching is starting not earlier than in June, instead an online program will be offered. Details about reading material and the format of the online lecture will be available here and in almaweb.
