The aim of the course is to deepen the knowledge of computational geometry. The course is designed primarily for

students who have a dissertation topic related to data structures in computer graphics and effective work with them. The

starting point of the study will be chapters from the compulsory literature, specific topics will be based on scientific

articles that develop the issue. Students will have the latest articles on the subject and will creatively process the theme.

This is mainly about mastering the methodology of scientific work taking into account the subject of the dissertation.

Precisely this aspect (the methodology of scientific work in the given field) is one of the added values ofthe subject. The

subject, with its theoretical character, invites directly to the above-defined concept.
