Lecture: Algorithms for Simulation and Optimization of Physical Processes: From Ground Tomography to 3D-CAVE Visualization

Description:
Using competences from computer science and mathematics is becoming a bigger part of the ever growing area of simulating real-world phenomena from natural and engineering sciences. This interdisciplinary course demonstrates the complete cycle to analyze a selected geological process by computational techniques. It offers an algorithmic introduction not only to so-called forward problems, in which synthetic data are computed based on adequately parametrized computer models. The course also introduces some inverse problems that reverse forward models by determining characteristic model parameters from incomplete measuring data. Emphasis is put on gaining practical programming experiences in an interactive programming environment.

Audience:
This interdisciplinary course is offered to students from computer science and geology but may as well be relevant for mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering disciplines.
