Students' library

The students’ library is situated in room 21, house 5 and has literature for the students. These books can be useful when you for example are writing a thesis. We have reference copies of course literature, which can be read in the library opening hours.

To a certain extent, students on the courses

  • Mathematical methods for economic and statistical analysis
  • Mathematical methods for economists
  • Mathematics I
  • Mathematics for the natural sciences I and II
  • Probability theory I
  • Stochastic processes and simulation I
  • Statistical analysis

can get help when the library is open. You cannot expect the tutors to provide you with complete solutions to problems or to do complete surveys of parts of the course. The tutors must divide their time evenly between the students who seek advice.

Students of mathematics should preferably ask that tutors from the division of mathematics and students of mathematical statistics those from the division of mathematical statistics.
