Investigate the flexibility and power of project-oriented computational
analysis. Practice using this technique to resolve complicated
problems in a range of fields including the physical and
engineering sciences, finance and economics, medical, social and
biological sciences. Enhance communication of information by creating
visual representations of scientific data.
This course is a survey of numerical solution techniques for ordinary
and partial differential equations. Emphasis will be on the application
of numerical schemes to practical problems in the engineering and
physical sciences. Apply advanced MATLAB routines and toolboxes to
solve problems. Review and practice graphical techniques for
information presentation and learn to create visual illustrations of
I only saw the first couple of weeks, so if it changed later I'm sorry for being unfair. The course goes against the spirit of MOOC courses: the videos weren't designed for the course itself, but most seem to be actual classes filmed. So you don't feel like having a full course, but just a compilation of some class videos. Furthermore the topics were confusing and not very well motivated.
