Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks This course will cover a wide range of advanced techniques used for image processing and image reconstruction, with a special focus on physical science applications. Following a problem-solving philosophy, the course will motivate all techniques and fundamental concepts with problems drawn from real-life applications. Each class will address a specific technique, yet all will be linked by recurrent essential topics including Fourier analysis, linear algebra, iterative techniques, maximum likelihood and convex optimization. In addition to the two-hour classes, a weekly one-hour exercise session will take place to answer questions and present homework solutions. Exercises will take the form of simple programming tasks.

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?


Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
