This is Robert's teaching page. I have retired from active service on September 30, 2022. My status as a Professorial Fellow implies that my teaching from now on will be welcome but not mandatory. I am planning to offer courses from time to time, but not in the current winter semester. For the time being, I am keeping this page for reference.

It should contain course descriptions for all lecture courses, some links to older material, and announcements that serve as a means of communicating short-run changes.

News

 

 

Regarding the continuing coronavirus problem, of course I am obliged to follow the rules and instructions that are being announced for the whole university. Virtual meetings with students are possible, I suggest using skype. Whereas distance teaching can be an interesting challenge, distance examinations by construction do not really satisfy. I hope that tests and exams in presence at the university will remain with us.


General information for all courses


If you have any paper material for me (such as homework assignments or forms), please leave it with our administration. Never leave any material with other faculty.

 

In case you cannot attend a test (not an exam; there are special regulations for no-show at exams) for important reasons or you are unable to be present at any other dated event within a course, please give me notice via e-mail immediately. I expect such notifications to arrive within three days after the event that you missed.
