Due to the measures taken by the University of Vienna to prevent rapid spreading of Corona virus, the format of this course has to be changed until further notice. There cannot be any lectures in class. Instead, I will provide written explanations of the material and post them in the section "Course material" on the Moodle page. In combination with the beamer presentation that is already on the website, this should allow students to learn the material by themselves. There will also be a discussion forum on the website that allows students to post questions and receive answers. There will be no changes regarding the homework exercises and their assessment.
