## Drop-In Meeting

The drop-in meetings take place on **Mondays, 14-17 h c.t. in PI Lecture Hall I**

These meetings offer discussions about general questions arising from the exercises or the lectures.

## Exercises

The exercises will start on Thursday and Friday, 26/27 October 2017.

The exercises are to be solved as homework problems. new exercise sheets will be handed out in the lecture on Mondays or can be downloaded from this page (see below). Please hand in the solved exercise sheets until Tuesdays 12:00pm of the following week at Room 2.025 in the BCTP. These will then be corrected, returned and discussed in the exercise groups by your respective tutors.
