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.
