Angewandte Geometrie

Georg Glaeser
Art and Technology, Geometry
2019S, Vorlesungen (VO), 1.0 semester hours, course number S10048


The lecture is about theory and the numerous appilcations of geometry.

The seminar delves deeper into the subjects of the course. Students have the chance to select several of these subjects, to research them further,
and to present their results. A special emphasis is put on the ability to express oneself using geometrically correct terminology, on the clarity of the
ideas presented, and on the style of the presentation itself. This is good practice for aspiring architects and designers, who will eventually have to
present ideas convincingly, and in a scientifically correct context.

Examination Modalities

Students will usually give a paper (or papers) after taking the Applied Geometry exam, so a certain standard in terms of basic geometric knowledge can be expected. Assessment for this course includes the delivery and the written/electronic form of the paper(s) as well as, more generally, constructive contributions to discussions.


The lecture is held in English.
