Numerical Algorithms for Visual Computing III
Summer Term 2007
Numerical Algorithms for Visual Computing III: Optimisation
Lectures (2h) with exercises (1h)
Third part of a course in numerical methods useful in the field of visual computing. NAVC3 covers topics centered around the spectrum of optimisation methods.
Undergraduate knowledge of mathematics. For computer science students, this requirement is met by having completed the Mathematics for Computer Scientists lecture cycle. Participation at NAVC1 or NAVC2 is not required, the topics of the different courses in numerical algorithms for visual computing are independent of each other.
Mathematical prerequisites which exceed the basic mathematics courses are provided within the lecture. Previous knowledge is not required.
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).
The first written examination takes place at July 19, at the usual place and time of the lecture. It is `open script', so you may bring along everything from the lectures and the tutorials, as well as a pocket calculator (though every computation needs to be documented on paper). Paper is provided by the lecturer.
None specific, diverse books and scripts on numerical mathematics not easily accessible for non-specialists.
