Lectures are delivered by Petr Pošík or Tomas Svoboda (TS).

We strongly suggest attending the lectures personally. The lectures will have a hybrid form, they will be streamed and recorded. BigBlueButton will be used to deliver the lectures. You will find the link to the course room in BRUTE, on Course ⇒ Conference rooms. BRUTE will also contain the lecture recordings in several formats:

  • Internal viewer - full recording, including slides or shared screen, video stream (blackboard), and chat. Please note the BBB player may not work in Safari properly, use another browser. Video stream (showing blackboard in the classroom or shared screen) and the slide screen can be interchanged.
  • MP4 - video containing only slides/shared screen. No blackboard recording.
  • PDF - pdf with all drawings made during the on-line session into the slides.

You can also watch the MP4 recordings from a previous year distance teaching at the BE5B33KUI YouTube channel. However, beware that the content of the course might have changed slightly since then.

PDF of the slides will be posted on this page. Preliminary version (e.g., last year's) before the lecture. Latest version, including teacher's notes shortly after the lecture. If you spot mistakes in the slides, please report them. Important corrections may be rewarded with bonus points. Active participation in lectures is welcomed and encouraged.

Books, on-line resources, specialization courses will be referenced throughout the lectures - their list is typically at the last slide.
