Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This seminar is conceived for students who have fun solving problems that require tricky applications of basic mathematical knowledge and a lot of clever and creative thinking. The proposed exercises stem from many different areas of mathematics, the correct recognition of the applicable theoretical tools represents a big part of the interest but also of the difficulty of the problems and distinguishes them from the classical exercises in introductory seminars.

Assessment and permitted materials

prüfungsimmanente LV Bewertung der vorgerechneten Aufgaben, der Mitarbeit und des Engagements beim Lösen der Aufgaben.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

During the semesters short talks will present several selected topics that may be relevant for the solving certain classes of problems. The main focus of the seminar is of course to train the skill of solving problems and there is no better way of doing this than treating and solving as many exercises as possible. Moreover 4 participants will have the chance to represent the University of Vienna in April 2015 at the Vojtech Jarnik Competition Competition or in July 2015 at the IMC.
Course methods (language of instruction) Im Lauf des Semesters sollen ausgesuchte theoretische Schwerpunkte in Form von Kurzvorträgen besprochen werden, die jeweils beim Lösen einer Klasse von Aufgaben hilfreich sind. Der wesentliche Aspekt des Seminars ist natürlich, das selbständige Lösen zu trainiern und dazu gibt es nichts besseres, als so viele Beispiele wie möglich bearbeitet und gelöst zu haben. Darüberhinaus bietet sich für 4 Teilnehmer die Möglichkeit, die Universität Wien entweder beim Vojtech Jarnik Wettbewerb im April 2015 oder beim IMC im Juli 2015 zu vertreten .
