Introduction to computer modelling with the programming language Julia

Data is displayed for academic year: 2023./2024.

Course Description

The course is used to introduce students to the basics of computer modelling and the programming language Julia. Students are introduced to the basics of creating computer models and the analysis of the results of the calculation of such models. Julia is a programming language that is highly adapted for computer modelling and complex numerical analysis. Students are trained to work with the Julia programming language by applying to real problems from different domains that are suitable for computer modelling.
