Welcome to the homepage of the lecture
Numerical Algorithms for Visual Computing III: Optimisation
Summer Term 2011
Lectures (2h) with exercises (2h), summer term 2011.
The final results after the second written examination are now available.
Course in numerical methods useful in the field of visual computing. The third part of the course is concerned with optimisation methods.
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).
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.
The second written examination will take place on September 22,
starting at 14:15 in the seminar room 3.23 in the MMCI cluster building E1.7 (3rd floor).
Please make sure that you are there in time, ideally at 14:00.
Diverse books and scripts on numerical mathematics, depending on the topic. Details will be given in the lecture.
The script is available
here (Current version: July 12th).
It will be updated regularly in the course of the semester.
Of course, we do not take on any responsibilities for (rare) typos.
