## Organisation

- Lecturer: Christiane Schmidt ,
Valentin Polishchuk
- Course start on October 14, 2019.
- The course will consist of 7 seminars. Most of the seminars will be lectures/problem solving sessions led by me, Christiane. Moreover, all students have to prepare a group presentation (on topics from Distributed Algorithms, possibly, depending on the number of participants, on Matroids). In addition, homework assignments will be given. These will not be marked, but for each student 2 assignments are picked for presentation, and the requisite of 50% of homework translates to a sufficiently correct and complete presentation of at least one solution. The grade will be based on the exercises assigned during the course and one exam per part.
- The first seminar is on October 14, 2019, 13:00-17:00 in room SP6225.
