0.4 credits1KG. Tauriello, C. Conti, P. Koumoutsakos
AbstractIntroduction to object oriented programming with C++. Fundamental concepts, simple applications and hands on tutorials.
ObjectiveLearn basic concepts of object oriented programming in C++: classes, inheritance, polymorphism and STL
ContentTutorials, hands on exercises
Lecture notesHandouts
LiteratureProgramming: Principles and Practice using C++ (B. Stroustrup)
Prerequisites / NoticePrerequisites: "Informatik" (2nd semester lecture), laptop (at least one every two students). We will use a VirtualBox linux environment (as in "Informatik", 2nd semester). This Engineering Tool is a prerequisite for the class "Computational Methods for Engineering Applications I"
151-0431-00LComputational Methods for Engineering Applications I4 credits2V + 1UP. Koumoutsakos, G. Tauriello
AbstractFundamental Computational Methods for data analysis, modeling and simulation
relevant to Engineering applications. The course emphasizes the implementation
of these methods using object oriented programming in C++ with application
examples drawn from Engineering applications
ObjectiveThe course aims to introduce Engineering students to fundamentals of
Interpolation, Solution of non-linear equations, Filtering and Numerical
Integration. The course aims to integrate numerical methods with enhancing the
students programming skills in object oriented languages. The course serves as
foundation for Computational Methods in Engineering Applications II (Fall
Semester), that is concerned with Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations.
