In this course, the EECS code of honor applies, see:
The course is given in 4 course offerings per academic year; the course offerings in period 2 and 4 are given at a lower level of service and the course occasions in period 1 and 3 at a higher level of service. Higher level of service implies that an initial lecture is held and that the students may receive fast answers to questions per e-mail. Lower level of service implies pure self-study and that the answers to questions by e-mail can wait up to 2 weeks.
