We normally have two lectures per week, one on Monday and one on Friday, both at 15:15–17:00. There is one lecture on a Thursday at 08:00–09:45. See below for a more precise schedule. See the official schedule on TimeEdit.
Slides by the textbook authors can be found at:
These slides are frequently used during our lectures. They also help link the lectures to the textbooks, which we strongly recommend you study.
They can be found here.
We will try to make the slides/lecture notes available online on this page the day before each class. A new version of the slides may be uploaded after class according to what has actually been presented. We encourage you to take notes independent of the slides material available before class.
