Learn the basics of symmetric spaces.

The lecture will **start on Wednesday, 23rd of February 2021** and takes place every week on

On the ** 16.03, 17.03, 23.03 and 24.03 ** the lectures/exercise class will be in ** HG G 43**. Here is the live stream for HG G 43.

Lectures will be in-person. When in HG G 19.1, the lecture is live streamed here.

Recordings are here.

Exercise sessions take place on Thursdays every second week in ** HG G 19.1 ** from ** 12-14**. The first exercise session will be on Thursday the 3rd of March.

The exercise sheet will be uploaded on this page. The exercise sheet k will be uploaded on Friday of week 2k - 1 and it will be due on Thursday of week 2k + 1.

**Please, upload your solution via the SAM upload tool.**

In order to access the website you will need a NETHZ-account and you will have to be connected to the ETH-network. From outside the ETH network you can connect to the ETH network via VPN. Here are instructions on how to do that.

Make sure that your solution is ** one PDF file** and that its file name is formatted in the following way:

` solution_<number of exercise sheet>_<your last name>_<your first name>.pdf `

**Example**:
` solution_2_Surname_Name.pdf`
