Please note: A first meeting will be held via videoconference on 7 October to discuss the semester (see Moodle).

This course will be a hybrid course with in-person classes and (asynchronous) online exercises. Should in-person classes not be possible due to Covid-19, video conferencing will be used instead.

This course and the following course Simultaneous II will focus on the same topics and, as far as possible, a mix of methods will be used that encompasses both courses. I recommend participating in both, but this is not a requirement.
