Learning Outcomes: The seminar will introduce students to a selected area of the algorithms of computed tomography (CT) reconstruction. The purpose is:
1. to present a review of CT modelling
2. to present the reconstruction algorithms in CT application
3. to find a preference algorithm to solve the corresponding CT problems
Each student will present one selected topic so that they will have the competence to work independently on the selected topic.
Content: In every seminar talk, there is the author/student who writes a 2-4 page summary paper about the subject and gives the talk, and an opponent, whose task is to make questions and stimulate discussion after the presentation. Every student is the author for (at least) one talk and the opponent for another talk. The author/student should send the summary paper to the opponent and to the teachers (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) on the Thursday preceding the presentation day. The slides should be sent to the teachers latest on the day preceding the presentation. The opponent prepares at least 2-3 questions about the topic to stimulate discussion after the talk. Normal talk is 20-30 minutes.
Assessment Methods and Criteria: searching and reading of literature, writing of summary paper, presentation and preparations, peer review, homework
Workload: 10-12 h contact teaching, 50-60 h independent studies. Attendance in all of part of seminars is compulsory.
