Detailed Schedule, Spring 2015 (Period 4)

Lectures (F), Laborations (L), and Exams

There are links to the lecture slides. All slides are in PDF format, full size slides for viewing on screen and 4-up slides (four per page) for printing.

There are also pointers into the course book (Michael R. Hansen, Hans Rischel: Functional Programming Using F#) telling, for each lecture, where to find the corresponding topics in the book.

See here how to find the lecture halls.
