The general aim of this lecture course is threefold:

1) to interconnect different mathematical fields
2) to connect mathematics and real life problems
3) to learn to be critical and to ask relevant questions.

We start on October 15th with the lecture - no problem class yet since we work throughout the semester on the projects instead.

Vorlesung: Montag 9:45-11:15 Building 10.50 Room 602
Übung: Dienstag 15:45-17:15 SR 3.61

Introduction lecture Oct. 15

We deal with topics such as

Simulation of traffic

  • My Course on Traffic models (in German) with links to all related Podcast Episodes

Heat conduction

Fluids and flow

There are no special prerequisites.

During the lecture course there will be one lecture of a person from industry (before Christmas) and one excursion (at the end of the lecture course).


To earn the credits you have to attend the lecture and finish the work on one project during the term in a group of 2-3 persons. The topic of the project is up to the choice of each group. The exam is an oral exam.
