"Pensum part" refers to the curriculum list above.

The course will be arranged as a colloquium, due to the teaching load of prof. Conradi.

The responsible person for each pensum part must prepare presentation slides, copy them before each lecture/colloquium, and send the .ppt-file to Reidar Conradi (conradi@idi.ntnu.no). You may have to contact the course responsible for possible slides from previous years, but most are available on the web site.

And write in English!

Exam is on xx Aug. 2009, oral.
