The Exam will take place in a computer room. On the computer the same Linux system is installed as in the public computer rooms in the HG. MATLAB is installed on all computers, there is no internet access and only a selection of programs is available. You have access to several files, including a partial version of the lecture notes from this year.
If you want to get familiar with the exam environment it is recommended to go to a public computer room in the HG, start the computer with Linux and solve one or two exercises there. You can also log-in remotely through VPN and SSH from outside ETH.
Subjects of the examination: all topics addressed in class or in homework assignments.
Two examinations will be held during the semester. At least one of the two must be succesfully passed in order to obtain access to the final exam. Points earned in each examination will contribute to the final grade.
Both examinations will last 30 min and will be closed book on paper during the Friday time slots.
Studying extra literature is optional and not required for following this course. Here, we provide a non-comprehensive list of supplementary readings for this course.
