Tutorial Thilo Rörig Wed 12-14 MA 850
Thu 8-10 MA 744

This is a course of the Berlin Mathematical School held in English.

The first lecture will be on Monday 17.10, the first Tutorial on Wednesday 26.10. and Thursday 27.10. Rooms will be announced on this website.


There will be no tutorials on Wed 15 and Thu 16 of February because I'm (Thilo) ill. Sorry. The certificates (Scheine) can be collected at Jean Downes' office (MA728, 9:30-11:30).
There will be no tutorials on Wed 1 and Thu 2 of February because I'm (Thilo) ill. Sorry.
Exercise 1 on sheet 6 is now easier and correct. See corrected version .
In exercise 4 on sheet 1, p needs to be a pole of the boundary of the hemisphere Hp. See corrected version below.
The lecture on monday will be in the main building to the right in room H0106. There were no bigger rooms available in the math building - sorry. Rooms for the tutorials will hopefully be announced tomorrow.


Euclidean and non-euclidean geometry: spherical, hyperbolic, projective, Möbius, and Lie geometry. The continuation is Geometry II: Discrete Differential Geometry.

Exercise sheets

The exercise sheets can be found here. First exercise sheet will be available on Wed 26.10.

Homework policy

To get a certificate for the tutorial, you need to satisfactorily complete 60% of the homework assignments.
