After the course, the participants know the basic models of geometric algorithms. They are able to identify algorithmic difficulites of geometric problems and are able to formulate adequate objectives. They can handle different solution techniques and are able to develop algorithmic methods for yet unknown problems. They survey the practical relevance of problems and solutions.

We will speak English in class. Students are encouraged (but not required) to use English in exercises and exams as well.

  1. Geometric Problems and Data Structures
  2. Triangulation
  3. Localization
  4. Voronoi Diagrams
  5. Convex Hulls
  6. Motion planning for robots
