- The applications of the stuff dealing with chemical systems are still not clear to me, I would rather have spent more time on the other material.» (Adequate)
- I think most of it the material is the summary of research done recently. I guess shifting the subject content to something more established and well understood might be a good idea. In particular it is always good to follow a standard textbook for a course.» (Good)
- Good lectures. Kristian is very enthusiastic about the subject and seems to know quite well what he is talking about.» (Good)
- This is really a typical course that I like.» (Excellent)
- A lot of golden bits in this subject as well.» (Excellent)

18. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Most I think.»
- Having exam questions as handins are a great idea.»
- Home assignments and mini-projects.»
- Kristian, the home assignments and the possibility to do a mini project.»
- Lecture format. Mini projects. Assignments.»

19. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I would like to have one lecture of how the contents of this course could be applied to engineering problems. Not as a technical lecture, but as a lecture with possible applications.»
- Please be better prepared when you"re going to do chaos exercises on the board.»
- An oral examination would be better at the end of the course. It would judge the persons understanding better, and also reduce the risk of making silly errors in the examination, which can affect the grades adversely at times. Or maybe the assignments can be made tougher and the final examination can be made easier.»
- Get a new web server. Keep up the good work with improving the lecture notes.»
