  • VL Formal Modeling (WS 2022)

    326.006, Wednesday, 15:30-17:00, Room: S2, Z74 Start: October 5, 2022

    We discuss the formal modeling of mathematical problems that are amenable to algorithms and software from symbolic computation; the models are based on the language of algebra and logic. In this lecture, we discuss particular examples from various application domains. In the accompanying proseminar students are expected to model selected problems and demonstrate their results in the form of small papers and presentations.

    As an extra service, some course units may be live-streamed and recorded via the following Zoom Meeting (but no guarantee is given with respect to completeness and quality of the streams, the basic format is on-site, not hybrid):
