Introduction

The Scientific Computing course, P573, provides a general broad introduction to the Art of Scientific Computing, for an Art it is. You will become acquainted with numerous computing tools used by scientists in their every day work. These will cover 

We will also talk about

The course is addressed to two groups of students: 

1.
Computer Science students interested in learning about specifics of scientific computing
2.
students from other Science schools interested in learning about tools that may help them in their research work

The interests of these two groups, as well as their skills are not exactly the same, but there is a sufficient overlap to let us proceed with a course that should be of use to both. All scientific and computing material will be introduced in a way that should make the course self-contained.
