Advanced Mathematics for Engineers 1

Advanced Mathematics for Engineers 1 (Hochschule Ravensburg-Weingarten Univ.). Instructor: Professor Wolfgang Ertel. After a repetition of basic linear algebra, computer algebra and calculus, this course will deal with numerical calculus, statistics and function approximation, which are the most important basic mathematics topics for engineers in the fields of computer science, mechatronics and electrical engineering.

Topics covered in this course, Advanced Mathematics for Engineers 1, include: computer algebra; calculus including sequences, power series, continuity, Taylor series, and differential calculus in many variables; discrete distributions; roots of nonlinear equations, and method of least squares and pseudoinverse.
