  • The first part of the course is a so called "Würfelseminar", i.e. certain topics are to be prepared by all participants. Every 10 minutes, say, a different person will be asked (at random ® Würfel) to present the next pages of the underlying literature. The purpose is
                   (i) to obtain some common knowledge base of all participants, and
                   (ii) to facilitate discussion.
  • Literature for the "Würfelseminar": see "basic literature" above
  • In the second part each group of 2 participants will be given a special topic which has to be prepared and presented some weeks later. Also a term paper must be written on this topic.

The Würfelseminar is over now.
