Practical Training (Master) WS 2017/18

Programming Methods in Scientific Computing (P4E1)

Dr. Einar Smith

For the implementation of the algorithms in scientific computing, various different programming languages and packages are used. In this practical training we shall systematically discuss some of the most wide-spread approaches and methods. They will be illustrated by procedures known from other numeric-courses. The practical training is however also suitable for beginners, who have little or no numerical experience. Bachelor as well as master-students are welcome.

In particular we shall be concerned with:

The topics will be presented in a lecture of 2 hours per week. The practical training is then divided into sets of homework exercises, which are to be solved individually or in small groups. This will require about 4-6 hours a week.
For the participants, modern workstation and a large Linux-cluster are provided in the INS. Python and all required packages can however also easly be installed on home-computers under Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.
