Numerical Algorithms for Visual Computing III: Optimisation

Summer Term 2009

Numerical Algorithms for Visual Computing III: Optimisation

Dr. Michael Breuß and M.Sc. Kai Hagenburg

Summer 2009

Lectures (2h) with exercises (2h), summer term 2009.

Lectures: Th 10–12 (10 a.m.–12 a.m.), Building E1.3, Lecture Hall 001
Tutorial: Mo 14–16 (14 a.m.–16 p.m.), Building E1.3, Seminar Room 016

NEW: SECOND EXAM The second exam will take place on Thursday, October 1st, at 10 a.m. (usual lecture time) in Seminar Room 3.06 in Building E1.1. The exam will be again an open-book exam, so you may bring the course material (e.g. scripts, exercises and sample solutions) and your hand-written notes. You are also allowed to bring a non-programmable pocket calculator.

SCRIPT: The script is available online (updated on July 23th). In case you find any mistakes, feel free to contact us.

NEW: RESULTS OF FIRST WRITTEN EXAM You can find a list with the results here.

Course in numerical methods useful in the field of visual computing. The third part of the course is concerned with optimisation methods.

Entrance requirementsContentsAssessments / ExamsReferencesDownloads

Undergraduate knowledge of mathematics. For computer science students, this requirement is met by having completed the Mathematics for Computer Scientists lecture cycle.

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).

Topics include:

  • variational optimisation methods
  • discrete optimisation methods

There will be two written exams, the first one at the end of the semester instead of the last lecture. The date of the second written exam will be announced.
Please note that for NAVC3, we expect our students to achieve fifty percent of the total points one may obtain by submitting results of exercises. This can be done in groups of up to three students.

Diverse books and scripts on numerical mathematics, depending on the topic. Details will be given in the lecture.
