There are still some slots for orals on the 19.10 available. Please contact me (Thilo) by email.
[08. 7.]
The scriptum has again been updated and the certificates are ready to be collected in my office on monday (I'm not in on friday). If you want to pass an oral exam in July you need to register at the Pruefungsamt with your certificate. The plan for next week is to meet on wednesday after the lecture to have some cake/ice cream at the Mathecafe instead of a tutorial. In thursday's tutorial I will finish my overview of Complex Analysis I (chp. 8-end).
[29. 6.]
Update in homework number 10.1.ii). I added an optional exercise 10.4. that can be used to solve 10.1.ii). If you need extra points you may also solve the optional exercise and hand it in next week - see updated sheet below. Sorry.
