Lehrveranstaltung im WS 2016/17:

Ich werde die Vorlesung "Rechenmethoden" halten (Di 08:15-10:00 in O.06.01=HS15 und Do 8:15-9:00 in F.13.11).
Wir werden unter anderem Folien von PD Dr. Michael Karbach verwenden. Vorgesehene Inhalte:
 • Komplexe Zahlen
 • Reelle Funktionen
 • Vektorrechnung
 • Differentialrechnung
 • Lineare Algebra
 • Komplexe Funktionen
 • Integralrechnung
 • Differentialgleichungen
 • Matrixwertige Funktionen
 • Kombinatorik
 • Funktionensysteme
 • Statistische Methoden
Noch wichtiger als die Vorlesungen sind die Übungen.
Das aktuelle Aufgabenblatt wird in der Vorlesung ausgeteilt werden und hier abzurufen sein.
Es sind 3 Übungsgruppen vorgesehen: N.Chreim, D.Laubach, J.Meyer.
Zur Zeit offen ist die Aufteilung der Gruppen/Räume (Do 9:15-10:00 in F.13.11, Do 9:15-10:00 in D.10.08, Do 9:15-10:00 in D.07.01 ODER D.10.15)
