Many modern techniques in image processing and computer vision make
use of methods based on partial differential equations (PDEs) and
variational calculus. Moreover, many classical methods may be
reinterpreted as approximations of PDEbased techniques. In this
course we will get an indepth insight into these methods.
For each of these techniques, we will discuss the basic ideas
as well as theoretical and algorithmic aspects. Examples from
the fields of medical imaging and computer aided quality control
illustrate the various application possibilities.
Equally suited for students of visual computing, mathematics and computer science. Requires undergraduate knowledge in mathematics (e.g. ''Mathematik für Informatiker IIII''). Knowledge in image processing or differential equations is useful, but not required. The lectures will be given in English. A combination of classroom and homework assignments (including theoretical as well as programming problems) is offered. The classroom assignments are intended to be solved in the tutorials and are not graded. The homework assignments are intended to be solved at home and have to be submitted on Friday before the lecture. In order to qualify for the exam you must
Working in groups of up to 3 people is permitted, but all persons must be in
the same tutorial group.
Both classroom as well as homework assignments will be discussed in the
tutorials.
The tutorial group can be reached via the mail addresses: Registration is now closed. You can still check in which group you are via here. Please do not forget to register also in the HISPOS system.
The first written exam will take place on
The second written exam will take place on In order to qualify for the exams you must
In case of qualification, you are allowed to take part in both exams. The better grade counts. The exams will be closed book. These are the rules during the exams:
Course material will be made available on this webpage in order to
support the classroom teaching and the tutorials, not to replace
them. Additional organisational information, examples and explanations
that may be relevant for your understanding and the exam are provided
in the lectures and tutorials. It is solely your responsibility
 not ours  to make sure that you receive this infomation.
At the end of the semester, there will be a selftest problem sheet that contains 6 problems, which are intended to be similar in style and difficulty to a 180minutes written exam. Here you can download the material for the programming assignments:
