Sparse Grids


The sparse grid method is the basis for a large part of the research done in the department. Therefore often the situation arises that the method has to be explained to students with little knowledge, or to people from other departments who are interested in this research field.

In order to hand a helpful tool to the person who has to explain the sparse grid method, it was decided that a tutorial movie should be created using at that time available facilities. Its task is to show an easy approach to the sparse grid method in graphic pictures and based on common foundations.

The movie was realized at TU München by Andreas Paul and Thomas Gerstner under the direction of Hans Bungartz in 1994. It is in German language.

(MPEG-Movie, Size: 360x270, 10 frames/second, total ~20 minutes)
