Course Syllabus

Abstract

This course is based on • knowledge of main mathematical concepts and methods in discrete mathematics, linear algebra and real analysis; • the material presented in basic computer programming and algorithm and date structure courses. Supplementary Chapters of computer mathematics is a course for the second year students studying at MIEM NRU HSE specializing in Computer security. This course is an introduction to the methods of mathematical modelling using modern features of specialized software systems. The Wolfram Mathematica is used as a main tool of mathematical modelling in this course. The course focuses on the study of numerical and symbolic mathematical calculations, as well as on the study of the basic principles of programming in the Wolfram Mathematica system. The emphasis of the course is more on solving a variety of different problems rather than on the rigorous and theoretical study of general methods of mathematical modelling. The problems from different areas of mathematics are covered in the course, including elementary math, mathematical analysis, discrete mathematics, linear algebra and probability theory. The mathematical modelling of physical processes is also slightly covered in the course.
