In order to receive a course certificate, students are required to hand in two thirds of the exercise sheets.

Basis of the exam is the lecture, the script (Chapter 1-6),
and the exercises. For the chapter about "Resource Inequalities", the
exam will solely be based on the material covered in course. The
corresponding chapter in the lecture notes can be considered as a
supplement (see remark at the beginning of Chapter 7).
