Question Session 08

These are the slides I prepared for the question session. In the end we had a small-group discussion about just part of this. Because the event turned into a discussion, there is no recording. You are of course welcome to ask questions.

If the slides are not working, or you prefer them full screen, please try this link.


Ask a Question

Your question will normally be answered in the question session of the next lecture.
