COMMAS C5: Introduction to Scientific Programming

Short description

This course is designed for participants of the COMMAS master of science program at the  Universität Stuttgart and is a core course of this program.
It provides the basic knowledge and skills for numerical programming and for the development of numerical software.
The topics discussed cover basics of numerical analysis as well as an introduction to numerical methods for systems of linear equations, interpolation, quadrature, nonlinear equations, and ordinary differential equations. Concerning programming, the course is based upon Python and Maple's script language. Till winter term 2005/06, I gave this lecture for the IPVS/SgS continuing the course of Prof. Bungartz.
