  • Tests and grading: the course is composed of a theoretical part and a practical part (tutorials). You will get a grade both for theory and for practicals. You need to pass both, and your final grade will be the average of the two (rounded up). More information will be given on the practical details of the tests.
  • Homework:
    • Homeworks will be handed out regularily during the semester.
    • You must be able to reproduce homework solutions as part of the tests. You are allowed to help each other with homeworks (but not during the test...), and you are also encouraged to ask for consultation, but individual work is most encouraged.
  • Individual project:
    • Each of you will recieve a more difficult, individual task, too. This may consist of producing a numerical simulation, understanding a book chapter and summarizing it in some written notes, or understanding some recent publications and producing notes on it, to be handed in. 
  • Exam:
    • The written exam (date specified later) will probably consist of two parts: (1) exercises based on homeworks and tutorials; (2) material discussed at lectures. 
    • Those who fail the written exam will have to take an oral exam

Time and location of written exam (also correction of two tests possible!): 



  • Upon demand.
