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.
Lecture notesLecture Notes will be distributed in class
Literature1. Introduction to Applied Mathematics, G. Strang
2. Analysis of Numerical Methods, Isaacson and Keller
Prerequisites / Notice- Informatik
- A course on the interface of classical (first principle) and Data driven models in computing. Fundamental algorithms for inference, approximation and optimisation. Bridging the gap of Computational and Data sciences.
