Topics in Applicable Analysis
Spring 2016 not offered
This course is aimed at students with no previous experience or with modest experience in programming. The course will be structured in two parts that will run parallel. One part will be dedicated to learning the basics of programming, such as data types, statements and syntax, data containers, control structures, functions, object-oriented programming, and file input/output. Teaching will be based on the Python language, which is a free and widely adopted high-level language with applications in scientific computing, finance industry, and the Web. In parallel to this formal computer science introduction, the course will introduce students to the basics of scientific computing, teaching aspects such as data interpolation, data fitting, solution of linear systems, meaning of eigenvectors and eigenvalues in computing, filtering and convolution, least squares problems, and a brief introduction to ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations.

|Fulfills a Major Requirement for: (MATH)(NS&B)
|Examinations and Assignments:
Weekly assignments, one mid-term project, and one final project.
Students will work on 2 projects, a midterm and a final project that will be developed over the course of 5 weeks each. The projects will be modularized in weekly subprojects which will serve as weekly assignments. The midterm project will be oriented toward creating a computer vision application; the final project will be oriented to developing an application for simulating and visualizing heat transport.
|Additional Requirements and/or Comments:
For MATH majors this course can either be used to fulfill the 200 and above elective requirement or the Algorithms & Computer Programming requirement, but not both.
Students cannot receive credits for BOTH this section of COMP260 and COMP112, or for BOTH this section of COMP260 and COMP265.
