Abstract: This lecture is the introductory course to Computer Graphics. The course teaches the algorithms used to program a computer to generate images of a geometric model with associated appearance properties. Topic include:

  • Geometric Models
  • Color & perception
  • Lighting
  • Ray Tracing
  • Texture mapping
  • Graphics APIs
  • Linear and affine Transformations
  • Rasterization and Shading
  • Clipping
  • Visibility & shadows
  • Curves & surfaces

Lab Course (Forschungsprojekt): Scientific Visualization

Time & Place: Thu. 16:00—18:00, October 16th, LF 125
Instructors: Prof. Dr. J. Krüger, A. Schiewe & T. Fogal
Course Language: English
Audience: Master (Angewandte Informatik, Angewandte Kognitions- und Medienwissenschaften, International Studies in Engineering)
LSF listing. Moodle site.

Abstract: The main purpose of this course is to convey fundamental knowledge in the field of scientific visualization, including topics such as Volume Visualization, Flow Visualization, and GPGPU Programming The participants will develop an interactive tool for the visualization of stationary and time-dependent 3D scalar- and vector-fields. The C++ language and DirectX or OpenGL will be used to implement the discussed algorithms and concepts using the computational power of modern GPUs.

Lab Course (Praxisprojekt): High-Performance Computing: N-Body Simulation on Supercomputers

Time & Place: Tuesdays, 16:00—17:00, LF 125
Instructors: Prof. Dr. J. Krüger & T. Fogal
Course Language: English
Audience: Bachelor (Angewandte Informatik, Angewandte Kognitions- und Medienwissenschaften, International Studies in Engineering), Doctoral students needing a practical HPC introduction

Please note that this will be an implementation-intensive course, and furthermore that all course assignments and instructions will be given in English. Students will implement a simple `N-Body' simulation as well as analysis tools to understand the data output by your simulation. An N-Body simulation is a simulation of the movement of interacting bodies. One application is (for example), computing celestial motion according to Newtonian gravity. Class time will be used to help guide you in the implementation of your N-Body simulation. The course will start out simple and progressively build more and more complex parallelism (and thus higher performance!) into your simulation. In the end, you will have created your own highly-performant N-Body simulation that utilizes multi-scale parallelism.

Lab Course (Praxisprojekt): Object Oriented Game Development in C++

First Meeting: Thu. 12:00—14:00, October 16th, LF 125
Instructors: Prof. Dr. J. Krüger, A. Krekhov & T. Fogal
Course Language: English, Deutsch
Audience: Bachelor (Angewandte Informatik, Angewandte Kognitions- und Medienwissenschaften, International Studies in Engineering)
LSF listing. Moodle site.

During this course, your main task is to come up with a game idea and to implement it in your team. The objectives include:

  • Reviewing object oriented development
  • Learning C++
  • Understanding the basic principles of teamwork
  • Presenting and defending your ideas
  • Getting a Glimpse of the Game Development Process

Please note that this will be an implementation-intensive course!

Seminar: Recent Topics in Computer Graphics and Visualization with focus on presentation methods

First Meeting: Thu. 14:00—16:00, October 16th, LF 125
Instructors: Prof. Dr. J. Krüger & team
Course Langugage: German
Audience: Bachelor (Angewandte Informatik, Angewandte Kognitions- und Medienwissenschaften, International Studies in Engineering)
LSF listing. Moodle site.

Abstract: One of the goals of this seminar is to dive deeper into a few selected topics in computer graphics and visualization. Therefore, graduate students receive one or more recent publications from well known conferences such as IEEE VisWeek, ACM SIGGRAPH, and the EuroGraphics annual conference and explain the concepts laid out in these scientific publication in a scientific 30 to 40 minute talk. In addition to the scientific content in this seminar we will put special emphasis on the presentation. To improve the presentation skills of the participants we will start the seminar with simpe topics, record short talks from each participant, and analyze the presentation. Students then give a seminar talk on their chosen topic.
