Course objectives
This course is an enhancement to basic Programming course, F1400, via practice in programming more complex tasks.
The main objective of the course is to provide the students with the ability to
- use program gnuplot for graph plotting of functions and data,
- write programs in programming language C,
- employ GNU Octave and Matlab to solve tasks in numerical math,
- employ typography system LaTeX in scope of creating scientific texts.
Learning outcomes
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- write simple programs in programming language C, in GNU Octave or Matlab;
- employ typography system LaTeX for typesetting of scientific texts.
  • Operating systems. Linux. Programming. Text editors.
  • Data and function drawing in gnuplot.
  • Programming language C. Simple programs: evaluation of functions, iterations, input and output.
  • Programs Octave and Matlab. Basic vectorial and matricial operations.
  • Basics of typography. Writing of scientific texts in typography system LaTeX. Basic commands and packages.
