Eligibility:


In order to be eligible for a second cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme that owns the course. (If the second cycle course is owned by a first cycle programme, second cycle entry requirements apply.)
Exemption from the eligibility requirement: Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling these requirements.

Course specific prerequisites

A basic course in mathematical statistics. Some programming experience is recommended - contact the examiner if in doubt about this.

Aim

The goal is to introduce the student to some important mathemati-
cal software packages and problem solving skills with computer,
and making the computer a natural problem solving tool, via work
on concrete mathematical and mathematical statistical and problems

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

use these software packages as natural tools in later courses
- have developed problem solving skills
- move between analytical and numerical problem solving methods with use of computer
- write mathematical reports using LaTex.

Content

The core of the course are six projects in different areas of mathematics and mathematical statistics and their applications, including finance, bioinformatics, and bootstrap. Each project contains a number of problems to be solved, mainly using the software packages Matlab, Mathematica, R and C. The projects are presented at lectures and the software packages are introduced during teacher led laborations. It depends on the problem at hand what software package is the best suited to deal with it. However, all four packages can be used to deal with two or more of the projects. TIn particular it will be possible for students with a special interest in the statistical package R to make extensive use of that package. he project reports in LaTeX should be handed in shortly after the end of the course, at latest.

Organisation

Lectures that introduce the projects. Demonstations of computer programs. Supervising of projects.

Literature

Mainly different handouts. See the course homepage before course start.

Examination

Written reports of the results of the work with the projetcs. The grading is based on how the problems in the projects are solved and reported.
