- | In our life as researcher, we encounter constantly concepts outside of our expertise and we wish to understand just the big idea. Why does the concept exist? For what is it used? In this library, you should get approximate answers to these questions. | + | In our researchers life, we encounter constantly concepts outside of our expertise for which we wish to understand the main ideas.

+ | We see this wiki as a place to put references giving a pleasant, visual and conceptual overview on research topics without entering into technical details, like a 10-minute-explanation during the coffee break. </ | ||

In addition, we try to give for every concept a very short overview, a picture to have in mind, a slogan to remember. | In addition, we try to give for every concept a very short overview, a picture to have in mind, a slogan to remember. | ||

+ | ====== How to find material ====== | ||

+ | | ||

+ | If you want to get an overview over a concept, here are some general ideas how to find quickly information. | ||

+ | | ||

+ | - // | ||

+ | - //Lecture notes//: Find a course on the subject. Often the first paragraphs give an overview over the concept. | ||

+ | - //Papers " | ||

+ | To find a specific item, some hints: | ||
