5 credits4RA. Geiger
AbstractThis course provides basic knowledge on parameter estimation and data processing. The necessary mathematical and statistical methods are developed and are applied to actual examples in geomatics.
ObjectiveThe students are capable of analysing measurements with with appropriate methods. They can optimally extract model parameters from real measurements and are able to analyse and to retrieve additional information from time series. They understand the underlying algorithms of different geodetic analysis tools and processing methods.

103-0657-01LSignal Processing, Modeling, Inversion3 credits2GA. Geiger
AbstractTimeseries analysis, orthogonal decomposition, Interpretation of measurements, Parameterestimation and Inversion of analytical and voxel-type models
ObjectiveStudents are able to analyse data in view of specific scientific questions and interpretations. They have basic methodologies at hand to mathematically formulate engineering and scientific problems. Students know terminologies and basic methodologies in order to be able to further study the expert litrature.
ContentTimeseries analysis, fourier transformation, DFT, auto-, crosscorrelation, ARMA Interpretation of measurements, Parameterestimation and Inversion of analytical and voxel-type models, resolution, uncertainties

AbstractIntroduction to general scientific working methods and skills in the core fields of geomatics. It includes a literature study, a review of one of the articles, a presentation and a report about the literature study.
ObjectiveLearn how to search for literature, how to write a scientific report, how to present scientific results, and how to critically read and review a scientific article
ContentA list of themes for the literature study are made availabel at the beginning of the semester. A theme can be selected based on a moodle.
Prerequisites / NoticeAgreement with one of the responsible Professors is necessary
