Meetings:  Tuesday, 9:30  11:20, K 9509 May 7: We meet in ASB 10940 instead
July 30: We meet in ASB 10964 instead


Goal and format: 
Each meeting, one of the participants will lecture on a part of the textbook.
We will fix the assignment of topics and the lecture schedule on the first
meeting.
Lecturers, as a guideline, should prepare a lecture of about an hour. Our time slot allows for overrun and discussion. 

Schedule: 
This is a preliminary schedule. Furthermore, for some topics we should probably use additional references.
