Course description and aims

The purposes of the first half of this class are to learn a basic programming technique of Python and to be able to make programs for numerical analysis by succeeding "Programming and numerical analysis". Students learn from basic grammar of Python to data structures such as list and array. And students learn algorithms of statistical processing and signal and image processing, and practice programmings.
The purpose of the second half of this class is to develop practical abilities such as applied numerical simulation methods, visualization of results by succeeding "Programming and numerical analysis". In the group work, students will experience not only numerical simulation or programming but also problem setting, modeling, and evaluation of results.

Student learning outcomes

Students can obtain the following abilities by this lecture
(1) Basic grammar of Python
(2) Algorithms of statistical processing and signal and image processing
(3) Basic programming


Programming,numerical analysis, algorithm, Python, statistical processing, signal and image processing, modeling, visualization

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

In the beginning part of each class, students learn about grammar of a programming language and algorithms. After that, make programs based on them.
