Requirements to the exam -

Successfully passing an exam in this lecture course means correctly solving two problems, which are submitted to students in an electronic form before the term end and which correspond to the lecture topics read in the current academic year. When solving the problems, students can consult any literature source. Students can submit their exam-problem solutions electronically anytime before the term end (only as a pdf file) or hand them in in a written form at one of the offered exam days in the current exam period.
