Person in charge of the module's outline Prof. Dr. Stephan Dahlke, Prof. Dr. Volkmar Welker


Development of software in a small working group under supervision. The software efficiently implements procedures and algorithms from the content of a mathematical module (e.g. numerics, optimization, stochastics, discrete mathematics). The software is documented.

Qualification Goals


  • can implement mathematical algorithms in small working groups under supervision, but largely independently,
  • acquire the necessary, more detailed knowledge of the procedures used and the development environment.

The students practice

  • the implementation of mathematical algorithms,
  • the organization of a software project,
  • teamwork.


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, Object-oriented Programming. In addition, we recommend the competences that are taught in the relevant intermediate or advanced module.
