|Spring Semester 2019|
The semester exam (open-book, 45 minutes) of this lecture series covers the lectures given in this semester. At the exam you will receive three themes corresponding to three talks given in this semester and you will be asked to choose one.
State for this selected theme the three results or statements that you judge as being most important.
You are encouraged to supplement your explanation by graphs or tables, if appropriate, and to describe and value the applied methodology. Critique would be welcome, if you were not entirely happy with methods or interpretation.
Most importantly, you should justify your judgements with arguments – this is what will be evaluated by the examiners, not your selection of what you found most important. Please discuss only issues that were presented in the respective talks, and not related issues that you know from other sources. Please be concise and aim to condense your text to one page.
