    Matrices in Science

    The course starts with an overview of the role of matrices to solve problems in scientific computing.

    Matrix Manipulation

    Next the course proceeds by reviewing basic manipulation and operations on them, followed by factorizations, solutions of matrix equations, and the computation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

    Interpolation and Approximation

    Also interpolation and approximation is treated where advanced techniques are shown to approximate functions and their applications in scientific computing.

    Differentiation en Integration

    Differentiation techniques to produce derivatives of functions are discussed as well as integration techniques showing how to compute areas and volumes effectively.

    Computational Geometry

    The module Computational Geometry takes a tour of the most significant algorithms in this branch of computer science.

    Statistics and Data Mining

    And finally the course pays attention to statistical inference, machine learning, and data mining.
