This module provides students with a range of mathematical techniques to be applied to the solution of practical problems using MATLAB.
The aim of this module is to provide students with an understanding of the principles of a range of mathematical techniques and how they can be applied to the solution of practical problems using the language MATLAB.
After completing this module, students will be expected to be able to:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of MATLAB language.
2. Demonstrate an understanding of mathematical techniques introduced in this module.
3. Apply these techniques in MATLAB to solve practical problems.
Introduction to MATLAB.
Numerical Matrix computation.
Analysis and handling of functions of one variable including data fitting, interpolation, root finding and optimisation.
Analysis of multi-dimensional data including data science techniques such as clustering and classification.
Random numbers and Monte Carlo simulation.
Lectures and Laboratories

be necessary to make changes, for example to programmes, modules, facilities or fees. Examples of such reasons might include a change of law or regulatory requirements,
industrial action, lack of demand, departure of key personnel, change in government policy, or withdrawal/reduction of funding. Changes to modules may for example consist
of variations to the content and method of delivery or assessment of modules and other services, to discontinue modules and other services and to merge or combine modules.
The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications and module directory.
