Description

That course will introduce you to Scilab.

Scilab is a powerful scientific computation Software for Engineers and Scientists.

It is free, open source and very similar to Matlab.

The course is a great video based tutorial for any person that is interested in scientific computation : engineers, scientists or anybody curious about applied mathematics.

The structure of the course is the following :

- Section 1 is an overview of Scilab and how to get it.

A Newton method to solve a non-linear equation is given as an example.

- Section 2 covers basic linear algebra using Scilab.

- Section 3 presents Scilab language structures.

As an example, the Newton method is extended to the two dimensional case.

- Section 4 covers the graphic capabilities of Scilab

An example displays natural images, that are given as additional material.

- Section 5 covers advanced topics.

An example shows how to code the wavelet representation of a signal into a single Scilab structured variable. It is then used for compression purposes.

- Section 6 gives a final project and the conclusion.

This project processes images for compression purpose, using a two dimensional wavelets transform.

It is the opportunity to reuse everything learned previously.

Who is the target audience?

- Engineers
- Engineering Students
- Scientists
- Sciences students
- Anybody interested in scientific computation

What Will I Learn?

The course is made of 22 lectures and includes a total of 5 hours video.

Additional information is given in pdf files, examples sources and images in Scilab format.

At the end of this course, the students will be sufficiently familiar with Scilab to start programing their own numerical projects.

That course will also be instrumental in our forthcoming series of courses on practical mathematics.

Requirements

- Undergraduate level in Mathematics
- Students or future students of the fourthcoming course series "Practical Mathematics"
