- An exercise sheet is uploaded every Thursday. The corresponding solution appears one week after the due date.
- You have the possibility to hand in your solution to all or only to some of the exercises that are in the exercise sheets to your teaching assistant and have it graded and commented. You may hand it in/pick it up either during the exercise classes on Monday, or leave it in the corresponding mailboxes in HG F 28.
- Handing in, even at different time intervals, is a good way to test your preparation and understanding of the subject. It will not contribute to the final grade.
- If you have troubles solving a particular exercise, do not understand the solution or have any other question, do not refrain from asking or mailing your teching assistant or the course assistant.
- If you spot any typo or you think there may be some mistake, do not hesitate to contact the course assistant. Except for small typos, all changes made after the initial release are marked in blue.

- No aiding material is allowed during the exam. This includes: lecture notes, personal notes, exercise sheets, mobile phones or tablets, calculators. A
- While solving the exercises, you may invoke the main results seen in the course (e.g. Hahn-Banach, the Closed Graph Theorem), their main corollaries and the results quoted in the compendium. Aside from this, every step in your argument must be proved.
- You may bring your own blank paper (A4 format).
- In order to obtain the maximal grade, it will not be necessary to solve all problems.
- You can find the
