date  Tutorial 

Feb 1st  After some confusion about the tutorial last week, there will be another tutorial for questions about the worksheet on iterative methods (8:3010:00  if the train from Stuttgart arrives in time, some minutes later if it does not  room 1237) 
Feb 8th (Friday)  Deadline for submission of the exercises 
As the midterm exam, it will consist of one part (30 minutes) with questions
tat have to be answered without notes, books etc., and of a second part
(90 minutes) for which notes and books are allowed, but no calculators
etc.
It will cover the contents of the lectures up to and including Lesson
9 'Fast iterative solvers of SLE'.
