For the first oral exams we offer two time slots: Namely February 16th or March 1st. The exams take place at LBH, room E01, on the right-hand side from the lobby of the LBH.
Tutorials will be held every second week.
Next tutorial on November 24th/25th. Prepare
the exercises below.
Lecturing started Tuesday October 20th at 16:15 at LBH, Hörsaal III.03,
with an introductory talk
but it is still possible to join the course.
References in the manuscript are still missing but will be updated.

In this course we consider intruder and evader problems from an algorithmic point of view. We discuss problems in the context of motion planning in discrete and continuous environment. Discrete environments will be mainly defined by graphs whereras in the continuous case we will make use of the Euclidean plane or subsets of the Euclidean plane. The lecture starts with some examples examplifying the aim of the course and the bunch of methods that will be applied. The subjects are taken from different current research articles. There will be a manuscript as a main source for the course. In the tutorials or exercise groups we will discuss given problems that have to be solved and prepared by the participants of the course.
