402-1701-00L | Physics I | O | 7 credits | 4V + 2U | K. Ensslin | |

Abstract | This course gives a first introduction to Physics with an emphasis on classical mechanics. | |||||

Objective | Acquire knowledge of the basic principles regarding the physics of classical mechanics. Skills in solving physics problems. | |||||

252-0847-00L | Computer Science | O | 5 credits | 2V + 2U | R. Sasse, F. Friedrich Wicker | |

Abstract | The course covers the fundamental concepts of computer programming with a focus on systematic algorithmic problem solving. Taught language is C++. No programming experience is required. | |||||

Objective | Primary educational objective is to learn programming with C++. After having successfully attended the course, students have a good command of the mechanisms to construct a program. They know the fundamental control and data structures and understand how an algorithmic problem is mapped to a computer program. They have an idea of what happens "behind the scenes" when a program is translated and executed. Secondary goals are an algorithmic computational thinking, understanding the possibilities and limits of programming and to impart the way of thinking like a computer scientist. | |||||

Content | The course covers fundamental data types, expressions and statements, (limits of) computer arithmetic, control statements, functions, arrays, structural types and pointers. The part on object orientation deals with classes, inheritance and polymorphism; simple dynamic data types are introduced as examples. In general, the concepts provided in the course are motivated and illustrated with algorithms and applications. | |||||

Lecture notes | English lecture notes will be provided during the semester. The lecture notes and the lecture slides will be made available for download on the course web page. Exercises are solved and submitted online. | |||||
