360-420-DW - Winter 2021

The science part of this course is taught as a series of more-or-less independent modules. Some modules will take a second look at ideas introduced in previous courses (like Mechanics or Waves), but in a more sophisticated way. Other modules will introduce completely new ideas that can really only be approached through computation.

Numerical approach to ODEs and optimization

Given that ordinary differential equations govern most of the known universe, this module takes a closer look at ODEs in applications ranging from epidemiology to chaos theory. Then, we will survey numerical methods for root-finding and optimization in one-dimension.
