Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Intended learning outcomes

The course aims to give

  • basic skills in using mathematical software for future courses where MATLAB is used
  • an increased understanding of linear algebra and geometry
After finishing the course the student should be able to
  • use built in MATLAB commands for mathematical computations and visualising computed results
  • divide complex computational problems into subproblems, and formulate and implement computer algorithms for solving these problems

Course content

  1. The basics
    MATLABs interface, variables, matrices, assignment, indexing with scalars and vectors, colon notation, static and dynamic memory allocation, basic arithmetics, elementwise operations and matrix operations, comformality, transpose, solving linear systems of equations
  2. Visualisation and data processing
    Visualising curves, surfaces and time dependent objects, printing and exporting graphics, commands for generating vectors and matrices, mathematical constants and functions, curve fitting, complex numbers, random numbers
  3. Algorithms and programming
    Dividing computational problems into subproblems, formulating algorithms, iteration and selection, programming in MATLAB, relational operators, boolean algebra, input and output, commenting programming code

Teaching and working methods

Lectures, exercises, assignments, tutorials and seminars.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
