Examination modalities

You can hand in your programming examples in teams of two.

The results of the test ist weighted by 60% that of the exercises by 40% for the final mark. Additionally,  you have to achieve 40% of the test points

If you failed one test you may participate in an additional test (Nachtest) at the beginning of the WS.

If you plan to improve your mark through the additional test, please inform us when you are given insight into the 2nd test.

If you only failed for the test part in a previous VU, you can take credit of your previous exercises and only participate in the test.

 If because of Covisd it is not possible to have a presence test, most likely there will be a special programming example as a substitute with time available for this in June.

Previous knowledge

Prorgramming skills e.g. from Datenverarbeitung für TPH I

If you have deficits here please refresh your programming skills, i.e.,  program, before the first exercise.

As an extension of the introduction to Fortran we also offer the elective VU Wissenschaftliches Programmieren consiting of three additional afternoons with elementary programming in Fortran.

For the physical applications:

Statistical physics, quantum mechenics, mechanis, electrodynamics.
