The new exercises will be posted here on Tuesday. We expect you to look at the problems before exercise class and to prepare questions for the exercise class on Thursday/Friday.

If you want to hand in your solutions, please do so by the following Monday at 14:00 in your assistant's box in HG F28. Your solutions will usually be corrected and returned in the following exercise class or, if not collected, returned to the box in HG F28. Note that model solutions will be provided.

If you spot any mistakes or typos in the exercises or solutions, please communicate these to the coordinators.
