Computer exercises:
There will be two compulsory labs, the first one in the third week and the second one in the fifth week. An application list where you can sign up will appear one week before the lab at the Matematik LTH notice board on the ground floor of the Math-building to the right. Make sure that you have a proper login and password to enter the EFD computer network (those who do not should contact the lecturer well in advance).

Mini-Project:
Problems for the assignment will be handed out at the second lab. Please note that the last day to get your report approved is the week 47 (prel. November 21). This means that you have to hand it in earlier to be able to make necessary corrections.

Written examination:
Preliminary is planed on October 21 (and re-examination around January 11).
