The exam will be oral, and held individually on the 18th of July in the office of Prof. Klein (room 2.010 in the Informatikzentrum). Please register via basis first and then get an individual appointment by contacting Mrs Bertram after the 25th of June.

This lecture will give an introduction to the wide and interesting field of Topology from the perspective of a computer scientist. By introducing and examining common notations, tools and conventions to tackle problems in this research area we lay the groundwork for further explorations into varied topics in this field.

Topics will include among other things: simplices and simplicial complexes, surfaces, Morse functions and persistent homology.



There will be weekly exercises accompanying the lecture. Weekly exercise sheets will be uploaded and discussed in the exercises the following week. Participation is optional but highly recommended. Exercises will start in the second week of the semester.
