We will follow our own notes, which we will be publicly available and are based of numerous previous similar courses taught in the past.
Blackboard lectures to the extent possible by the Covid situation.
Oral exam, more precisely a short talk (20-30 minutes) on a topic chosen together by student and teacher: among the possibilities are topics treated in class, exercises discussed during the course or any other topic which is coherent with the course’s content and methods.
