Person in charge of the module's outline All lecturers of Mathematics

Contents

  • Advanced mathematics topics, which approach the state of the art in research
  • Topics are distributed to individual students or subject areas are distributed to small groups of students
  • Familiarisation with the topic on the basis of scientific literature in self-study, supported by feedback from the lecturer
  • One lecture per participant on the respective topic, largely free and comprehensible for the seminar participants
  • Discussion about the lectures

Qualification Goals

The students

  • work independently on an advanced mathematical topic,
  • develop their ability to carry out independent scientific work,
  • practice preparing mathematical contents and supplementing them with explanatory information,
  • inprove skills for dealing with scientific literature and literature search,
  • practice giving a structured lecture on an advanced mathematical topic,
  • deepen the handling of presentation media,
  • deepen the ability for structured discussion of mathematical content in groups,
  • further qualify in the use of mathematical text typesetting programs for the lecture notes.

Prerequisites

None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: either Foundations of Mathematics and Linear Algebra I and Linear Algebra II or Basic Linear Algebra, either Analysis I and Analysis II or Basic Real Analysis. In addition, the competences that are taught in the intermediate modules (depending on the topic) are recommended.
