Scientific Computation - M5SC
Scientific computing is an important skill for any mathematician. It requires both knowledge of algorithms and
proficiency in a scientific programming language. The aim of this module is to expose students from a varied
mathematical background to efficient algorithms to solve mathematical problems using computation.
The objectives are that by the end of the module all students should have a good familiarity with the essential
elements of the Python programming language, and be able to undertake programming tasks in a range of
common areas (see below).
