Course requirements
Basic knowledge in real analysis and probability theory is required for an easy understanding.
Assignments
Weekly assignments are given and due every Thursday. Students present the solutions in weekly exercise classes and are requested to be able to present solutions for 50% of the exercises. The assignments consist of a combination of theoretical exercises and programming tasks which can be implemented in the preferred programming language.

Examination
Besides the assignments a written 4 hour exam has to be passed on March 10.

Examination procedures
In Chalmers Student Portal you can read about when exams are given and what rules apply on exams at Chalmers.
At the link Scedule you can find when exams are given for courses at University of Gothenburg.
At the exam, you should be able to show valid identification.
Before the exam, it is important that you report that you want to take the examination. If you study at Chalmers, you will do this by the Chalmers Student Portal, and if you study at University of Gothenburg, so sign up via GU's Student Portal.

You can see your results in Ladok by logging on to the Student portal.

At the annual examination:
When it is practical a separate review is arranged. The date of the review will be announced here on the course website. Anyone who can not participate in the review may thereafter retrieve and review their exam on Mathematical sciences study expedition, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 to 13:00. Check that you have the right grades and score. Any complaints about the marking must be submitted in writing at the office, where there is a form to fill out.

At re-examination:
Exams are reviewed and picked up at the Mathematical sciences study expedition, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 to 13:00. Any complaints about the marking must be submitted in writing at the office, where there is a form to fill out.
