Synopsis:

Students will be working with modern technical and scientific software. Students will learn how to use different programming styles (functional programming, rule-based programming, etc.), how to create dynamic interactive applications and visualisations, data processing and presentations.

Requirements:

Basic knowledge of algorithmization (cycles, conditions, etc.) and data structures (mainly arrays).

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction

2. Syntax, function definition, working with expressions

3. Graphics, visualisation of functions, data sets, structures, etc.

4. Symbolic an numeric computations

5. Functional programming

6. Rule-based programming

7. Interactive documents - manipulators, interactive visualisations

8. Import and export of data, databases connectors

9. Typography in Mathemtica, dynamic documents

10. Selected application packages, parallel computations, neural networks

11. Creating application packages and projects

12. J/Link, mathlink - integration with Java and C

Study Objective:

Wolfram Mathematica is a modern technical and scientific software which has been developed over last 20 years. This system has been used at many prestigious universities and scientific institutions (e.g. CERN, NASA, Intel, Lockheed Martin, Apple, IBM, Microsoft, ...). It represents now the complete integrated environment for publication, presentation, computations, dynamic interactive applications, etc. Mathematica is very powerful programming language combining different programming styles (functional, rule-based, etc.). In this course the students will be introduced into the Mathematica system and they will learn how to work with different programming styles in this system. After the course the student will be able to create complete interactive documentats and presentations, process different data files, create own libraries, etc.
