TU Wien:Fixed-Parameter Algorithms and Complexity VU (Ganian)
- LVA-LeiterIn: Robert Ganian
- ECTS: 3
- Institut: Vorlage:ADS
- Wird im Wintersemester angeboten
Algorithms, techniques and proofs from the area of fixed-parameter algorithms.
WS17: Blocked on 6 days in January. 4.5 blocks are lectures, the last block is for student presentations.
The FPT part from Algorithmics VU is helpful but not required.
In English. Mr Ganian is a great lecturer. He not only presents the results, but usually leads the students to them. The atmosphere is very relaxed.
One 20-25 minute presentation of a selected paper from International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation (IPEC). You should present the main results and at least one non-trivial proof from the paper.
Doing the presentation gets you a "Befriedigend" (unless you do very badly, which didn't happen this semester). In order to get a better grade, you need to do an oral exam.
Dauer der Zeugnisausstellung
Well within 3 ECTS. Attending the 6 lectures takes approx. 6*3=18 hours. Add to that the time required to understand a paper prepare a presentation (15 hours?), and you have certainly passed the course. To get a better grade than 3, you will have to study for the exam, but if you pay attention during the lectures this shouldn't be too much work.
