3. Course contents *

This course is an introduction to the calculation software Matlab in an integrated manner. You will be encouraged to discover this software and to deal with it in a self-discovery way. Throughout concrete problems related to other subjects in the curriculum with an emphasis on mathematics, economics and engineering, you will become proficiant in the basic functions of the calculation software.

You learn to deal with data, matrix operations, charts in 2D and 3D, functions, While & if then else-structures in the calculation package. You also get acquainted with Matlab toolboxes on optimisation, finance and differential equations.

For mathematics, we will rely on functions, eigenvalues ​​and -vectors, optimization techniques, differential equations and line integrals. In engineering concepts such as modeling, vector fields, waves and energy will play a role. Economically will the behaviour of economic variables such as stocks or prices be at the heart of the problems.
