Matlab Programming for Numerical Computation
MATLAB is a popular language for numerical computation. This course introduces students to MATLAB programming, and demonstrate it’s use for scientific computations. The basis of computational techniques are expounded through various coding examples and problems, and practical ways to use MATLAB will be discussed.
The objective of this course is to introduce undergraduate students to computational methods using MATLAB. At the end of this course, a student would:
Learn basics of MATLAB programmingGet introduced to numerical methods for engineering problemsWill be able to use MATLAB to solve computational problems
SOFTWARE USEDWe will use MATLAB in this course. Course lectures, practice problems and assignments will be given using MATLAB.
MATLAB Online is a fully-featured browser-based version of MATLAB. With support from MathWorks, access to MATLAB Online is provided to all the enrolled students for the duration of this course.
INTENDED AUDIENCE :This course is targeted towards scientists and engineers interested in using MATLAB programming for numerical computations. Examples taken in this course will be of generic interest to a wide range of students.This is a hands-on (like a laboratory) elective course. Intended audience include undergraduates, people with BE / ME / MS / MSc degrees; The course may be useful for PhD students also
PRE-REQUISITES :The students for this course are expected to know basics of linear algebra and calculus. These are covered in Introductory Math course(s) for Engineers (typically done in first year).This is intended to be practical (laboratory) course. Some prior background in programming will be useful, though not required. Likewise, students who have either completed or are currently doing “Numerical Methods” / “Computational Techniques” will find it easier to follow this course. Theoretical aspects of methods covered in this lab can be found in NPTEL course on “Computational Techniques” (http://nptel.ac.in/courses/103106074/).
