Teaching Activities

Selected Topics in Modern Scientific Computing Summer Term 2013

Dr. J. Saak, M. Köhler

supplementary seminar for the lecture Scientific Computing II
Altough the seminar is by conception a supplementary course for the lecture, it can still be passed successfully without participation in the lecture itself.

Criteria for getting a course assessment:

  • Presentation of a talk and possibly relevant computer experiments in one of the seminar slots.
  • Supply of a 2A4 page handout to the other participants.


A list of short descriptions of all presentation topics together with the corresponding literature is available here..
