151-0431-00LModels, Algorithms and Data: Introduction to Computing Information 4 credits2V + 1UP. Koumoutsakos, J. H. Walther
AbstractFundamental Computational Methods for data analysis, modeling and simulation
relevant to Engineering applications. The course emphasizes the implementation
of these methods using object oriented programming in C++ with application
examples drawn from Engineering applications
ObjectiveThe course aims to introduce Engineering students to fundamentals of
Interpolation, Solution of non-linear equations, Filtering and Numerical
Integration. The course aims to integrate numerical methods with enhancing the
students programming skills in object oriented languages. The course serves as
foundation for Computational Methods in Engineering Applications II (Fall
Semester), that is concerned with Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations.
