Note on the questions for self-monitoring

Under the links behind the reading assignments I have compiled lists of questions which could help you to monitor your learning progress. If you can answer them, you have reached a sufficiently deep understanding of the concepts introduced in the respective chapter. If not, you should consult the relevant section again.
