An introductory workshop on Julia at JuliaCon, June 2016
"This course is an exploration of the art and science of extracting numbers from mathematical expressions. The material we will cover may be broadly divided into two units.
Unit 1 is all about basic numerical calculus. We will discuss elementary methods for obtaining accurate numerical estimates of integrals, derivatives, and infinite sums. This unit will include discussions of extrapolation, interpolation, root-finding, optimization, and evaluation of special functions."
The theme of Unit 2 of the course, Fourier analysis and spectral methods. "is that we can often revolutionize the speed and accuracy of a calculation by approximating a function as an expansion in some convenient set of expansion functions -- often a set of orthogonal functions. Our discussion of orthogonal-function expansions will begin, as must any, with the granddaddy of them all: the Fourier series and its immediate descendants (the Fourier transform, Parseval's and related theorems, the FFT, etc.). Then we will broaden the setting to consider more general classes of functions and more general spectral methods: Gaussian quadrature, Chebyshev polynomials, ... and more."
The course consists of three modules:
