The last lecture (condensed matter applications) will take place on Friday 5th February at 10.15 am. Your ECTS reports (`Scheine') will be handed out during the examples class on Friday 5th February. Please fill in this survey about the lecture and examples class. Print it, fill it in with a pen and bring it to the examples class.

There will be a Klausur (written exam) on 29th January 2016.
This is for those who have regularly submitted the
solutions to the examples, and will help us to determine
the mark on
your report.
