The registration is possible until May 19th, 2013. A withdrawal is possible two weeks before the first exam at the latest.
26.04.2013We received a lot of solutions for the first exercise sheet which were obviously copied from other students. This is not allowed! You need to create the solution by yourself. Starting with exercise sheet 2, we will consequently give 0 points for copied solutions (for all students with the same solutions). A group hand-in is also prohibited.
