Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  • formulate (certain) mathematical problems in algorithmic form,
  • explain the difference between imperative and object-oriented programming,
  • implement mathematical algorithms in Matlab, C, and C++,
  • present and explain own solutions, and
  • constructively discuss and analyze own solutions as well as those of other students.

Subject of course

Introduction to Matlab, C, and C++. Representation of integer and floating point numbers. Conditioning of given problems. Computational cost of algorithms. Variables and standard data types. Pointers. Loops and if-else. Functions and recursion. Call by value vs. call by reference. Objects and classes (resp. structures), Operator overloading, Inheritance. Templates. Visualization in MATLAB. Programming exercises. 

Teaching methods

Solving and implementing exercise problems, presentation and discussion of the own solutions in small exercise group (with less than 18 participants), help and feedback available through the TISS forum and the weakly tutorial class.
