Lecturer: prof. dr Arno Siebes

The Course

In this course we study different ways to battle the pattern explosion by reading and discussing the original research papers that introduced these methods. It is a tough course, you are expected to read up on mathematics you haven't seen before. But it is also a fun course, if (like me) you think that thinking very hard is fun.
