Course Notes
Course notes are available in german only, and they will appear here as soon as they are ready.
There won't be many changes from the notes from 2021, However, I have already found some
misprints in those notes, which will be corrected, and I also plan a few further changes.
If you find any mistakes or misprints,
please contact me.
