Summer Term 2016
On this page you find all the courses offered by the chair of Software Engineering in the summer term 2016 as well as respective slides and accompanying exercises.
Software engineering is "the application of engineering to software" (IEEE 610.12). Goal of this course is to provide a broad overview over the challenges of software engineering and techniques and tools to overcome them. To this end, we will discuss the main activities with software development (in particular project management, requirements engineering, design, testing, formal verification) with an emphasis on formal methods. We will study process models, (software metrics), approaches to requirements specification and analysis, (formal) modeling and analysis techniques, design and architecture patterns, testing, and program verification.
In this lecture, we investigate different methods and algorithms used to model and analyze cyber-physical systems. We use the formalism of hybrid automata to account for the discrete and the continuous aspects of the behavior of cyber-physical systems.
In diesem Praktikum soll ein Softwareentwicklungsprozess, beginnend bei Anforderungserhebung über Entwurfsphase bis hin zur Implementierung, die Organisation der Arbeit innerhalb einer Gruppe und der Umgang mit komplexen Systemen erlernt werden. Die Teilnehmer werden von den Betreuern in Gruppen eingeteilt und müssen eine bestimmte Aufgabenstellung realisieren. Hierzu müssen sie sich selbst organisieren, die Anforderungen definieren, Arbeit geschickt auf Gruppenmitglieder verteilen und neue Technologien selbstständig erlernen.
In the lecture about theoretical computer science you have seen finite automata, pushdown automata and Turing machines. All three of them operate on finite words. However there are other automata models and automata that do not operate on finite words, but e.g. on infinite words, on nested words, on trees, etc. In this seminar we will have a look at automata models that you have not seen in the lecture on theoretical computer science.
Program analysis is the research area that studies the automatic analysis of computer programs. The methods that are developed in this research area e.g., help programmers to understand complex programs, allow compilers to optimize their code, and enable computers to check the correctness of programs. In this seminar each student will study a research paper and give a talk in which he/she presents a summary of the paper.
