Numerical Methods with Python Programming – 2nd edition

22 April 2024

Jointly coordinated by the Polytechnic University of Leiria (IPLeiria) and the Technological University of the Shannon (TUS), the Short Advanced Programme (SAP) ‘Numerical Methods with Python Programming’ will introduce numerical methods to undergraduate and postgraduate students with some basic Python programming language skills and some mathematics skills in differentiation and integration.

The students will acquire general skills in elementary numerical analysis, and knowledge and techniques associated with problems and engineering sciences applications.

In this SAP we propose the use of the Python framework provided by Anaconda and the teaching will be supported by Jupyter Notebook.

Students should have some prior knowledge of working with a computer, editing files, and downloading and installing software.

It is assumed that if the students use their computers in class, they will already have installed the Anaconda framework on their computers.

From 7 June to 26 July 2024

Face-to-face week
From 22 to 26 July at the IPLeiria, Portugal
