Lecture: Mo 15:30-17:00, Rm 48-438 and Di 15:30-17:00, Rm (48-438 or 48-538)
Exampleclass: We 15:30-17:00, Rm 48-438 (Christian Eder)


  1. I would like to remind you that we will have our Tuesday lecture from this week on in room 48-538 (instead of 48-438). This room is larger and it should usually be available on Tuesdays from 3:30 pm to 5 pm, since it is booked for the colloquium. In the unlikely event that the room is not free we will have to move down to 48-438.
  2. There will be an additional lecture on Wednesday, 2/11/, from 17:15 to 18:45 in Room 48-538. This replaces the lecture on the holiday, 1/11.
  3. If you intend to participate in the example classes please register online via: The example class takes place on Wednesdays, at 15:30. In case this time turns out to be inconvenient, we will try to find a more suitable time.
  4. There are lecture notes by Simon Hampe on a large part of the course available. Please let me know if you find any errors or misprints:
