Angewandte Mathematik

Georg Glaeser
Art and Technology, Geometry
2021W, Vorlesungen (VO), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S60463


This lecture is different from standard lectures about mathematics.

Its aim is primarily to solidify A-level mathematical knowledge and to be able to put theory into practice. For this reason, it will not include the typical definition - theorem - proof strategy.

The book "Math Tools -- 500+ Applications in Science and Arts" (German version: "Der mathematische Werkzeugkasten -- Anwendungen in Kunst, Natur und Technik") offers accompanying material for the lecture. The introduction (in German) is available at


(If it is going to be necessary to switch to distance learning during the semester, this course will be continued virtually. More information will be provided in due time.)



Due to the nationwide lockdown that is in place since 22.11.21, this course will switch to distance learning. The lecture will be held at the regular times via Zoom. The link will be provided via email for all registered students. If the possibility of returning to the university during the next weeks opens up, you will be informed about it via base and email.




Examination Modalities

Written and oral exam at the end of term.


Detailed information about the exam will be provided in due course (depending on the Covid-19 situation).

(If a switch to distance learning will become necessary during the semester, there will be no public presentations. Instead, written contributions will eventually result in the grade. Further information will be provided by the lecturer.)



The lecture will be held in English.


At this point in time, the lecture will likely be held in Seminarraum 7 (former HS 2), OKP Ferstel-Trakt, 1st floor. As soon as there is more information available concerning the Covid-management for this semester, you will receive updates via this platform.
