Celebratory Exam

I have posted the take-home celebration exam. I hope you will enjoy working on it and that you will use it as a further opportunity to learn more about the material we covered during the course.

Good luck!

Addendum posted on Sunday, 16 November 2008: In Exercise 1, the transition from t1 to t2 labelled with a and b should be read as a short-hand for two transitions, one labelled a and the other labelled b. In other words, one can go from t1 to t2 by performing either an a action or a b action.

Luca Tesei's "Timed Systems" Course

Luca Tesei's "Timed Systems" course will start on Monday, 1 December 2008, at 15:00 CET. The course will be based on part II of my book.

If you think that you will attend the course, please post a comment. Of course, your expression of interest won't be binding. It will only give Luca Tesei an indication of how many people might follow his course.

Important news about the exam

After consultation with Emanuela Merelli and Luca Tesei, we have decided to increase the weight of the final take-home exam to 40%. This means that my part of the course will contribute 60% of the final grade.
