for computer scientists: Pflichtvorlesung "Grundlagen der Theoretischen Informatik"
-On the personal basis (see
above) students are presented with
available topics. Students then have the opportunity to
choose a topic to work on.

student and his tutor.
- The results of the praktikum will be presented at the end of the
semester in a talk given by the student.
final presentations, students may choose to present their work in German or in English.
The participants are expected to read the relevant literature,
and to discuss it with their tutor in order to become acquainted with
the topic chosen. The required implementation work should be carried
out in a structured way, and has to be documented appropriately. If a
topic is shared by two or more participants, acquiring team-working
skills is another goal of the praktikum. The results of the praktikum have
to be described in a project paper (~15 pages) and presented in a 30 minutes talk at
the end of the semester.
It is also the duty of the participants to reserve enough time for
performing the praktikum. The sharp deadline
for finishing the praktikum is the beginning of the following semester,
i.e. the allowed time for the praktikum is one semester plus the
following semester break. Failure to finish the praktikum in time will
result in no credits to be given. It is the obligation of the participant
to start the project in time, and to make appointments with the supervisor
for regular meetings during the semester.
choosing a topic, please take into account the knowledge you have already
acquired. For example, if you'd like to do a praktikum concerning knowledge
