Introductory Course on Scientific Programming
The goal of this course is to provide the basic programming skills needed
for solving mathematical problems on a computer. Emphasis is placed on
the actual implementation and not on the numerical methods.
The C programming language is covered in some detail and
compared to Fortran 77 and C++. An introduction is given to the
integrated technical computing environment MATLAB.
Through computer exercises the students will learn how to
The computer exercises aim to enable the students to implement a short
but relevant numerical application by the end of the first week.
- implement numerical methods in C
- write flexible and modular code
- exploit existing numerical libraries
- work with the computers at Nada
The course is a part of the
International Masters Programme in Scientific Computing.

There are no formal prerequisites for this course although it is
assumed that the students have some programming experience and
familiarity with numerical methods.
