Description

Version: 3.0 start 01 February 2021
 

Short description

The course Higher Mathematics 2 is the continuation of Higher Mathematics 1 and teaches students the advanced basics of numerical mathematics for computer scientists based on Python. Topics include the numerical solution of systems of nonlinear equations, numerical integration, interpolation and curve fitting, and the solution of ordinary differential equations.
