Correction on exercise sheet 10, exerice 4:
The hyporbolic line $l_3$ should be defined by the properties $l_1
\perp l_3$ and $l_2 \perp l_3$
and the normals should be normalized to satisfy $\langle n_1, n_1
\rangle = \langle n_2, n_2 \rangle = 1$.

Correction on exercise sheet 09, exerice 2:
The angle $\alpha_n$ in (ii) is the interior angle of a regular Euclidean
$n$-gon as determined in (i).
