\section*{Lectures}
We will have lectures on Thursdays from 11:15 to 12:45 in room G05-H4. In class, we will cover a lot of content, at a rather brisk pace. The most efficient way to proceed is to read the notes before the lecture. Try doing that: even a brief skim over the relevant chapter helps. We will also experiment with new tools: if you have one at hand, try bringing an Internet-connected device with you.

\section*{Assessment}
The end-of-semester examination will take place on July 12\up{th}, from 15:00 to 17:00 in room G26-HS1. This examination is the only assessment for the course. It lasts exactly 2~hours and is closed-book (a formula sheet is provided, containing the formulas and data contained in the preamble of every exercise sheet). A briefing regarding the examination will take place in class immediately after we cover Chapter~5, on May~24\up{th}.
The end-of-semester examination will take place on July 11\up{th}, from 15:30 to 17:30 in room G26-H1. This examination is the only assessment for the course. It lasts exactly 2~hours and is closed-book (a formula sheet is provided, containing the formulas and data contained in the preamble of every exercise sheet). A briefing regarding the examination will take place in class immediately after we cover Chapter~7, on May~23\up{rd}.
The examination consists exclusively of lightly-modified exercise sheet problems. As reported by students in the previous years, “the exam is very hard if you haven’t done the exercises, and very easy if you have done them”. It rewards your ability to methodically, resolutely and reliably solve the problems studied in class. To succeed, make sure you can solve all of them without outside help! A handful of archived examinations, together with their full solutions, is provided on the course homepage to help you practice.

The present document is, I hope, enough to allow you to work and succeed through the entire course. If you need a second source, I recommend the books of Crowe~et~al.~\cite{croweetal2001} (particularly since a dozen copies are available in our library), White~\cite{white2008}, Çengel et~al.~\cite{cengelcimbala2010}, or Munson et~al.~\cite{munsonetal2013} (a few personal copies of which can be borrowed from my office). These are solid, beautifully-illustrated, well-established textbooks, with plenty of worked-out exercises. You will see that this course matches closely their content and style.

\section*{Contact}
I can always be reached by email (olivier.cleynen@ovgu.de). It is far more efficient to ask questions during exercise sessions. If you cannot make it there or for urgent matters, contact me directly by mail (please be precise and succinct) or afternoons at my office G14-111.
