Suggested readings


  1. The references below are provided as optional material for the course. Students are not supposed to read all of them.
  2. Articles have been selected for different criteria (didactic aspects, reviews, new method introduction, ...)
  3. This list is restricted to a few articles that I found useful for accompanying the course. It is not supposed to contain a fair representation of the most important articles in the field.
  4. In particular, the selection of articles is obviously biased and contains several articles written by the teacher. This is because several practicals will be based on the correpsonding tools.
