Students should learn to read, understand, discuss and disseminate (in written and oral form) scientific papers.
In this seminar we will discuss several issues dealing with algorithms for games and puzzles. Students present chapters from the literature, and write detailed papers (in LaTeX) explaining their lectures.
Algorithms, Complexity, Datastructures (all at bachelor’s level).
The final grade is determined by the presentation, active participation, and two papers.
