I have taken the following exams at the University of Bergen:
In addition I have taken unnumbered exams with selected topics in algebraic geometry for 10 points (equivalent to a full term).
(There are no links to the courses Y132 and Y151 since these courses have been discontinued).
The final examinations for my Cand.Scient. took place the 2nd of July 1998. My advisor was Prof. Audun Holme, and the thesis was titled (in norwegian) "Om Multiple Strukturer".
The last three courses listed above were part of the formal requirements
for my doctoral degree. I finished my thesis in December 2001, and
defended it in March 2002. Its title is "Towards
a Classification of Multiple Structures". Note also the errata
file. For a short description of the mathematical contents of my
thesis, see this page.

I started my teaching career as an assistant teacher, mainly with exercise sessions for about ten students, in my third term at the university. Later on, I have also taught full courses. The complete list is
Calculus I. I was assistant teacher twice: the autumns 1995 and 1996.
M101 Calculus II. I was assistant teacher in spring 1997
M102 Linear Algebra. I was assistant teacher in spring 1998
M131 Elementary Geometry. I was assistant teacher in autumn 2000
M132 Combinatorics. I was assistant teacher in autumn 1997
Introductory Calculus. I taught some extra lectures (in the largest
auditorium in the faculty of science) in autumn 1998 and 1999.
M212 Theory of measure and Integration. I taught this course in autumn 1998. The web page I wrote at the time is here.
M233. Geometry and Topology. I have taught this course twice, in spring 1999 and spring 2001. My web page is here.
MAT111 Calculus 1, spring 2005.
MAT222 Algebra and Number Theory, spring 2005.
I have taught the preliminary course in mathematics at the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH) twice, in 1998 and 2000. This is a high-school level two weeks intensive course taught in August, before the regular autumn term begins.
In addition, I have lectured in several seminar series at the university, and also been in charge of running some. For the list of seminar activites, see my seminar page.
I have written notes (in norwegian) for a mini-course in homological algebra. There are some inaccuracies, so read the notes with care.
I defended my thesis in March 2002. Afterwards, I still had nearly a year left of my doctoral grant. So in the autumn, I went to Stockholm, with pay from the University of Bergen, and additional economical support from NorFA. Stockholm university were kind enough to provide me with an office and computer access. During my autumn in Sweden I presented my work in seminars both at the university and at KTH. After I returned from Stockholm, I got a Post.Doc. scholarship from the Norwegian Research Council. From November 2003 to June 2004, I stayed at the Institut Mittag-Leffler for the Noncommutative Geometry Year. My Post.Doc. scholarship ended early in 2005; I then had a temporary position as ass. professor at the University of Bergen. From August 2005, a similar position at NTNU in Trondheim.
