Pre-Course Mathematics

17 – 21 October 2022
9 AM – 12:30 PM
on-site with the possibility to participate remote
Prof. Dr. Bernhard Schmitzer
We will not focus on proofs and derivations but on good intuition and practical working knowledge.
Tentative list of topics:
  • analysis and calculus (limits, derivatives, integrals, differential equations)
  • linear algebra (eigendecomposition, inverses, linear systems, polytopes)
  • probabilities and statistics (distributions, covariance and correlation, Bayes' rule, hypothesis testing)
  • optimization (optimality conditions, Lagrange multipliers, convexity, gradient descent, Newton method)

See here for a more detailed list.

Registration via StudIP from 4 October 2022 onwards. Please note that there is a limited number of seats for on-site participation. Seats are assigned according to the time of registration. Remote participation isn’t limited.


In case you do not have any prior knowledge in Python or feel that your Python skills need a little refresh, the online self-study material of Prof. Bela Gipp’s group might be interesting for you. After you have registered here, you can access the course. Please note that a University of Göttingen account is required for registration.
