Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


Algorithms and Complexity of high and infinite-dimensional integration problems:
  • Monte Carlo Method,
  • discrepancy of point sequences and quasi Monte Carlo Method,
  • randomisation,
  • lower error bound and complexity of continuous problems,
  • curse of dimension,
  • quadrature problems for stochastic differential equations.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students know and understand the basic principles of the construction and analysis of algorithms for high-dimensional integration. They can apply the algorithms to solve practical problems, and they can critically analyze the possibilities and limitations of those. They understand how to develop important results and methods of complexity theory of continuous problems. They understand proofs presented in the lecture and are able to reproduce and explain them.

By solving the given exercises, they have gained a precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and methods of the lecture. In addition, they have learned to apply the methods to new problems, analyze them and develop solution strategies independently or by team work.
