Course contentsThe goal of the course is to give students good knowledge about the fundamental results in the geometric control theory. Here is an introduction to the course.
Course requirementsThe course requirements consist of an obligatory final written examination. There are also three homework sets we strongly encourage you to do. All these optional activities will not only give you bonus credits in the examination, but also help you understand the course material better.
Each homework set consists of not more than five problems. Each successfully completed homework set gives you maximally 5 points for the exam. The exact requirements will be posted on each separate homework set. The homework sets will be posted roughly ten days before the deadline on the course homepage.
2016 Homework and solution:
Written examWritten exam has been compulsory from V16.
This is an open book exam and you may bring the lecture notes, the exercise notes, your own classnotes and Beta Mathematics Handbook (or any equivalent handbook). The exam will consist of five problems that give maximally 100 points. These problems will be similar to those in the homework assignments and the tutorial exercises. The preliminary grade levels are distributed according to the following rule, where the total score is the sum of your exam score and maximally fifteen bonus points from the homework assignments (max credit is 115 points). These grade limits can only be modified to your advantage.
Solutions to exam of March 15, 2017 can be found here.
If your total score (exam score + maximum 15 bonus points from the homework assignments) is in the range 41-44 points then you are allowed to do a complementary examination for grade E. In the complementary examination you will be asked to solve two problems on your own. The solutions should be handed in to the examiner in written form and you must be able to defend your solutions in an oral examination. Contact the examiner no later than three weeks after the final exam if you want to do a complementary exam.
All the students are encouraged to answer the questionnaire on KTH Social.
