Literature: Near the bottom of the TISS
page of the course there is a list of courserelated literature.
Exam
The exam is divided into a written and an oral part, but administratively it is one exam and so
there is only one grade for the whole exam.
The first opportunity for the written exam is at the end of the winter term.
Then, three exam dates per semester will be offered.
For admission to the oral part, the score in the written exam has to be at least 50% of the
maximally possible score.
The oral part is taken preferrably at one of the dates offered on the list provided during the
written examination, which lie usually within one month after the written exam (most of the time
slots are about one week after the written exam).
If not taken within six months after the written exam, you resign from it and
will get the final grade "Failed".
In case of failing, the exam (and thus both parts) has to be repeated.
Exercises
General
The exercise sessions are organized in two groups both of which take place on Tuesday
(see TISS for exact time and place).
The exercise sessions start on Oct 10 and end on January 23.
Registration and attendance are mandatory. Please register in TISS for one of the two groups.
Exercise Sheets
will be uploaded here.
Modalities
 Prepare the homework given on the exercise sheets before the respective course unit.

For each
problem you have solved and you think you can present the solution on the blackboard, tick the
appropriate box in TUWEL before the deadline of the respective exercise session.
For both groups
the deadline is Tuesday 8:00 a.m. each week.
 Attendance to the exercise sessions is mandatory.
 After the course, you must have solved 60% of all problems.
 The final grade depends on the percentage of problems you solved and on your presentations
on the blackboard.
This means precisely: If P is the precentage of problems you have solved and B
is the average score of your blackboard presentations (where 100 is the maximum; thus
0≤B≤100 and 0≤P≤100), then
your grade is determined as follows:
 The overall percentage is calculated with the formula
 If P<60 the final grade is failed, else the value of A determines
your grade:
 60≤A<70 is sufficient,
 70≤A<80 is satisfactory,
 80≤A<90 is good,
 90≤A≤100 is very good.
