Course detail

Programming Methods II

FSI-0S2Acad. year: 2018/2019

The course deals with the use of elementary program techniques in complex algorithms: string valuation – infix, prefix, postfix, binary tree. Also discussed is software modelling of optical phenomena. The course familiarises students also with: Geometric self-similarity, Hausdorff dimension. Statistic self-similarity, nature figures modelling. Elements of software measurement of Hausdorff dimension.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will be able to solve more complicated mathematical and technical problems.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught through exercises which are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Course-unit credit is awarded on condition of having worked out semester work and programmed elementary algorithm.

Language of instruction


Work placements
