COURSE MATERIAL... The course material is completely online!

Course in numerical methods useful in the field of visual computing. The second part of the course is concerned with numerical methods for differential equations arising, especially, in image processing and related areas of Visual Computing.


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:

  • numerical methods for parabolic and elliptic partial differential equations arising e.g. in optic flow
  • schemes for hyperbolic partial differential equations arising e.g. in mathematical morphology


The second written examination will take place on March 26, starting at 14:15 in the seminar room 014 (as usual for the lecture/tutorial). Please make sure that you are there in time, ideally at 14:00.
The first written examination will take place on February 12, starting at 14:20 in the seminar room 014 (as usual for the lecture/tutorial). Please make sure that you are there in time, ideally at 14:10.
Concerning the allowed material, you may bring along the course material from the lectures and tutorials, nothing else. 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.
