Researchers and practitioners frequently spend more time fine-tuning algorithms
than designing and implementing them. This is particularly true when developing heuristics
and metaheuristics, where the “right” choice of values for search parameters has a
considerable effect on the performance of the procedure.
Visualization of Algorithms from Computational Geometry using QuickTime® Movies
Jay Martin Anderson,
Franklin & Marshall College
Free University of Bolzano-Bozen
QuickTime® movies provide students of computational geometry with a useful pedagogical tool that helps them to follow, implement and analyze algorithms. QuickTime movies can include explanatory text to support the visualization, breakpoints to stop the visualization for student interaction, and the ability to rewind, fast-forward and move step-by-step through the visualization. QuickTime Virtual Reality movies provide an additional element of interactivity.
We introduce here a suite of visualizations spanning many algorithms for many topics in computational geometry, offering thereby to stimulate discussion and debate on the pedagogical merits of this technique.
Artillery, AD and CIS faculty is a major branch of Vasil Levski NMU. Àccredited by the National Agency for Evaluation and Accreditation it provides education to cadets, students, post-graduate students and specialists. Different courses are carried out, such as re-training and in-service training, as well as foreign language courses for officers of the Bulgarian army and armies of countries - members of the Partnership for Peace initiative. The faculty also carries out other activities such as different research work and scientific development activities in the field of military and technical sciences.
The faculty follows the old tradition of the military education system, and its mission is to actively work towards the development of the military education in the Republic of Bulgaria. The faculty trains officers for the needs of the Bulgarian Army. They are known to possess excellent professional training, moral, physical and psychological stability and are leaders not only in the army, but also in society. They are capable of achieving excellent results in all army life aspects and are respected partners to the officers of NATO countries.
