Cours scientifique - MAA106 : Computational Mathematics

Domaine > Mathématiques appliquées.


The aim of Computational Mathematics (MAA 106) is to provide the students with practical knowledge of basic mathematical algorithms and computer programming.

The course is divided into 5 cycles and covers several notions such as the representation of numbers, the complexity of algorithms, interpolation of functions, numerical integration, solving equations and optimization problems. We focus on the practical implementation of the methods, using in particular Python notebooks which enable to test easily the algorithms with multiple parameters for instance.

The last three weeks of the course are devoted to a more personal project that will allow the student to understand deeper a notion seen in class. A public defense of this work concludes the course. The grading of the course includes the project and a homework that needs to be given back at the end of each cycle of the course.
