Solution sketch of sheet 7 (small mistake in solution of problem 3d, does not matter)


There will be a written exam on July 22, beginning at 12:00 in room B005. (if there should not be enough space, then also in B006). Please don't come late, be there at least 10 minutes before noon so we can start in time! The exam will have a duration of 3 hours with same weight on math part and on physics part. You may bring all notes and material related to the physics part only. We will check that you use no material for the math part. You will also need your student ID and a passport (Personalausweis or similar) for identification.
Here you find the Solution Sketch of the math part of the exam.

The results of the exam with grades are online here! You needed 24.5 of 60 points to pass. If you did not pass the exam and have at least 10 points in the physics part, you may take an oral make-up exam for the math part. (You can only improve in the math part). For details, please contact me (Lukas) via email or come to my office B303. The Scheine (certificates) for those who passed are ready and can be fetched in Prof. Paredes' office.
Many of you have not written a pseudonym on their exam, so I couldn't publish their result here. Those people may come to my office or write me an email.
