Time & Place

Monday, 15:00 - 16:30 , PK 3.3
Thursday, 16:45 - 19:0 , PK 3.2
small tutorial: Friday, 11:30 - 13:00, IZ 358, tutor: Thomas Mysliewitz.

We will start class only at the beginning of December, but will then meet twice a week (so both dates, Mondays and Thursdays, have a look at the course overview below). This will give you an intensive and fun introduction into Computational Geometry. Content you'd generally expect to be presented in lectures/tutorials will be presented on both days (with the overall 2+1-ratio preserved).

Start First Lecture: Monday, December 2
First small tutorial: Friday, December 13
Prerequisites none
Language English
Certificates (Homework assignments during the semester, and)* an exam at the end. (*=Studienleistung)

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.
