Einführung in die Informatik I, Analysis, Lineare Algebra, Computer Graphics, C++


IN2106, 6 SWS, 10.0 ECTS


Via email until 17.10.2012, 10:00 (see introductory slides)


23.10.2012 - No meeting on 31.10.2012 due to the SVV (Studentische Vollversammlung). Assignment 2 is a two week assignment.


The first meeting is on 17.10.2012, presence is mandatory for all participants. We will fix the teams, and the first weekly assignment will be presented. Also last-minute registration will be possible there (provided that there are free places left). 

The slides from the introduction are now available.


The main purpose of this course is to convey fundamental knowledge in the field of scientific visualization, including topics such as

  • Volume Visualization
  • Flow Visualization
  • GPGPU Programming

The participants will develop an interactive tool for the visualization of stationary and time-dependent 3D scalar- and vector-fields. The C++ language and DirectX 11 + HLSL (including compute shaders) will be used to implement the discussed algorithms and concepts utilizing the computational power of modern GPUs.

While knowledge of C++ and the fundamentals of computer graphics is expected, students will be given an introduction into Microsoft's DirectX application programming interface.
