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"

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
