Official Course Description:
The Natural Sicence Lab Units in Mathematics and Computational Science will introduce the computer as a tool for the working mathematician, as well as for scientists in many other fields.
The Lab Unit Numerical Software introduces Matlab and its free cousin Octave, software packages that allow easy and in many cases efficient implementations of matrix-based "number crunching". The software is ideal for numerical work such as solving differential equations or analyzing large amounts of laboratory data. The computer will be used as a tool in this course so that you will also learn some mathematics alongside learning to use the computer program. This Lab Unit is particularly suited students from both schools interested in experiments, as Matlab is used as a standard tool for analyzing and visualizing data by scientists in many fields of research.

Additional Information:
The 1st year labs will take place on Thursdays and Fridays, 14:15-18:30.
