About the course
The course is a continuation on Scientific Computing I (Beräkningsvetenskap I). Here, the focus is on management of large data sets (the Least squares method and interpolation), numerical methods for ordinary differential equations and methods that are based on random numbers (Monte Carlo methods). All three areas are of great importance in e.g. chemistry, biology and physics. There are a lot of applications in natural sciences where the course content are proved useful. A continued use of MATLAB is also an important part of the course.
