              • 2ILX0 Tangible computing, 1st year bachelor (2020 Q4, 2021 Q4, 2022 Q4)
                Tangible computing
                This course is about the fundamental ideas that led to the creation of modern computing systems, and about unconventional computing models that will potentially lead to the computing systems of tomorrow. We discuss basic operations underlying computation in classical computing systems, and see how to implement these operations using unconventional computing methods. We then encounter non-standard models of computation, and discuss their relation to classical computing systems.
              • 2IMA15 Geometric algorithms, master (2018-2021 Q2)
                Geometric algorithms
                In this course we study techniques and concepts needed to design and analyze geometric algorithms and data structures. Each technique and concept is illustrated on the basis of a problem arising in an application area like robotics, computer graphics, and geographic information systems.
