Lectures (2h) with exercises (2h), summer term 2008
Course in numerical methods useful in the field of visual computing. Covered are interpolation, approximation, Splines, Least-Squares-computations and other issues. Entrance requirements – Contents – Assessments / Exams – References
Undergraduate knowledge of mathematics. For computer science students,
this requirement is met by having completed the
The course is concerned with numerical methods useful for image analysis (image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition) and synthesis (computer graphics, scientific visualisation, geometric modelling). Topics include: - interpolation (splines, radial basis functions, scattered data approximation)
- approximation (least squares, total least squares, pseudoinverse, Karhunen-Loeve)
The second (and final) written examination will take place on
FRIDAY (!!) Septembre 19th,
at 14:15 in lecture hall 3 (not in lecture hall 1 !!!).
Please make sure that you are at lecture hall 3, ideally at 14:00.
Concerning the allowed material, you may bring along any material you
want, the course material from the lectures and tutorials, as well
as supplementary books etc.. Concerning a pocket calculator, participants
may use a non-programmable, non-graphical pocket calculator.
Diverse books and scripts on numerical mathematics, depending on the topic. Details will be given in the lecture.
