Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


Matrixfaktorisierungen (LR, Cholesky, QR) mit Anwendungen (lineare Gleichungssysteme und Ausgleichsprobleme), Elemente der Rundungsfehleranalyse (Bsp.: numerische Differentiation), Interpolation (Lagrange baryzentrisch, kubische Splineinterpolation), Nichtlineare Gleichungssysteme (Newton-Iteration) - Schnelle Fouriertransformation

Learning Outcome

Nach der Teilnahme an den Modulveranstaltungen ist der Studierende in der Lage, Basisalgorithmen der numerischen Mathematik und algorithmische Denkweisen zu verstehen. Er beherrscht Grundtechniken zur Beurteilung von Effizienz und Genauigkeit numerischer Algorithmen sowie zu ihrer Realisierung am Computer (z.B. in MATLAB).

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work


Exam Repetition

There is a possibility to take the exam at the end of the semester.

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.
