This is a basic course of the Berlin Mathematical School
and lectures will be held in English.
- Isabella cannot offer office hours on Thursday 3rd but two office hours next week: Monday 8th, 11-13, and Thursday,11th, 11-13. Isabella is out of office from July 15th to August 3rd, after that office hours by appointment.

- And one more correction in Homework 7: In Ex.1, the first two signatures must be interchanged (corrected version online).
- Please note the small correction in Homework 7, Ex.3 in the definition of the Quadric.
- For details about the classification of Möbius
transformations and pencils of circles see also the book by
Keen, Lakic, Hyperbolic geometry from a local viewpoint (Chap
1.5.1.) (not in the library but you can ask Isabella for a copy)
- Due to illness, there will be no tutorial sessions this week,
and Isabella's office hour has to be cancelled.
- In Homework 4, Ex 2.2 there is a tiny error, please replace

is welcome to join the Tuesday morning tutorial on April 30th.
- The first homework is online (see below under "Exercise
