### Examination:

The 1st written exam will take place in December 2017.
The 2nd written exam will take place probably in February 2018.
Four old written exams (07.12.2012, 05.02.2013, 21.12.2015, 21.12.2016)
with solutions can be found on the homepages
of my classes Game theory in the HWS 2012, the HWS 2015 and the HWS 2016
(user name and password are the same as for this page).

In order to be allowed to take part in the exam,
one has to reach 96 points in the exercises.-->

### Exercises:

Each week (except the last week), starting on 05.09.2017, there will
be a sheet of exercises.
All participants are advised to work out the exercises.
They are integral part of the course.
They complement the lectures by giving
examples, and they give the chance to work
yourself through typical arguments.

There will be 13 sheets altogether. Each will be worth 16 points.
Up to two people can submit solutions together,
at the beginning of the Tuesday lecture one week later.
On the Thursday two days later,
in the exercise session official solutions will be discussed.
The students' solutions will be graded until this Thursday
or the following Tuesday and will be given back in the lecture session.

In order to be allowed to take part in the exam,
one has to reach 12 times 8 = 96 points in the exercises.
