- Basics of image formation
- Linear and (simple) nonlinear image filtering
- Foundations of multi-view geometry

After successfully attending the course, students are familiar with the basics of computer vision. They understand fundamental techniques for the analysis of images and videos, can name their assumptions and mathematical formulations, as well as describe the resulting algorithms. They are able to implement these techniques in order to solve basic image analysis tasks on realistic imagery.
Can be taken for credit toward BSc / MSc Informatik, MSc Visual Computing, MSc Autonome Systeme, BSc / MSc Computational Engineering and others. Students from other departments, e.g. Mathematik, Elektrotechnik, IST, or Physik are welcome, though academic credit may need to be arranged.
It is recommended having previously taken Visual Computing (formerlyIntroduction to Human Computer Systems). Basics in mathematics and probability theory are required.
