Announcement for the seminar (Posting)

The Top 10 algorithms

Guidance: Prof. P. Benner (Rh.41,614), Th. Günther (Rh.41,612)
Place:Room 2/B202
Time:Monday, 15:30-17:00
(After the preliminary discussion some dates are left out for preparation)

In 2000, the editors of the journal Computing in Science and Engineering selected the ten algorithms of utmost importance in Science and Technology. This algorithms will be presented and discussed in this seminar. Every participant will chose one of the subjects below. The task is to present the main features of the algorithm, its historical development as well as its fields of application. The algorithm should be demonstrated using a simple example. As an entry point the compendium papers of the CISE are linked.
