There are many things worth knowing about studying computer science at RWTH Aachen University. This article presents a collection of tips and tricks regarding specific courses as well as studying computer science in general.
In the course of a seminar on “Selected Topics in Image Processing”, I worked on iPiano, an algorithm for non-convex and non-smooth optimization proposed by Ochs et al. . iPiano combines forward-backward splitting with an inertial force. This article presents the corresponding seminar paper including an implementation in C++ with applications to image denoising, image segmentation and compressed sensing.
