Lecture Tuesdays 15-17, CHN D42
Lecturers Prof. Peter Arbenz
Prof. Petros Koumoutsakos
Prof. Ivo Sbalzarini
Content Class participants study and make a 40 minute presentation (in English) on fundamental papers of Computational Science. A preliminary discussion of the talk (structure, content, methodology) with the responsible professor is required. The talk has to be given in a way that the other seminar participants can understand it and learn from it. Participation throughout the semester is mandatory.
Goal Studying and presenting fundamental works of Computational Science. Learning how to make a scientific presentation.
Papers will be distributed in the first seminar in the first week of the semester.
