Purpose of the discipline |
Formation of students’ skills and research skills in the modern computer mathematical environment Mathematica. As a result of the training, the student must know: – The ideology of the system and the principles of work in it; tools, data structures; features of building user functions; the possibility of visualizing research and formalizing research results in the form of publications; be able to: – apply a modern mathematical apparatus in effective integration with computer mathematical tools; – create and explore mathematical, computer, simulation models of different levels of abstraction; – to develop and analyze methods, algorithms, and software solutions for research topics; – skillfully apply the Wolfram programming language; – analyze the results of research, build information models; – prepare materials for publication on the topics and results of ongoing research; – independently expand computer mathematical knowledge with their further use in the construction and analysis of mathematical and computer models of a wide range of theoretical and applied problems. |
