Detailed information
Original study plan Master's programme Computer Science 2021W
Objectives The students are trained to apply the tools and concepts, introduced in the lecture, in practical problem solving: analysis of algorithms, etc. In particular, the usage of computer algebra software is encouraged.
Subject See the lecture.
Criteria for evaluation General criteria: Correctness and clarity of the presented solutions, ability to solve related problems independently; Concrete evaluation: blackboard examples.

Methods The students have to work out problems and to prepare blackboard presentations (or computer presentations) of the solutions found (using, e.g., computer algebra software). Discussion about the quality and their possible improvements.
Language English
Study material Detailed lecture notes and the book "The Concrete Tetrahedron" (Springer) by Manuel Kauers and Peter Paule.
