SIAM Short Course
Mathematical Software -- MATLAB, Mathematica and Maple
July 8, 2001
Town and Country Resort Hotel, San Diego, California
Preceding the SIAM Annual Meeting
This is actually three simultaneous, coordinated courses. It will be possible
to attend one day-long course involving one mathematical software package.
Or, after the introductory sessions, it will be possible to attend each of
the portions of the courses concentrating on a particular topic.
Who Should Attend? Faculty, students, professional scientists and engineers
who are interested in learning how to use, or to better use, one or more of
Recommended Background. Undergraduate mathematics, including matrices and
differential equations, and some scientific programming experience.
Cleve Moler, The MathWorks
Chairman and Chief Scientist. Original author of MATLAB. One of the founders
of the MathWorks. Current responsibilities include continued development of
MATLAB's mathematical core.
Rob Knapp, Wolfram Research
Rob Knapp has worked on numerical computation for Mathematica since 1994.
He got his degree in applied mathematics from the Courant Institute in 1988.
Keith Geddes, University of Waterloo
Professor of Computer Science and Co-Director of the Symbolic Computation
Group. One of the original authors of Maple and one of the founders of
Waterloo Maple, Inc.
Jacques Carette, Waterloo Maple
Jacques Carette has worked in various capacities at Waterloo Maple Inc since
1991. He is now Senior Architect. He got his PhD in Pure Mathematics from
the Universite' de Paris-Sud (Orsay) in 1997.
Each course will spend about an hour on each of six topics. After the
introductions, the order will be staggered so that attendees may concentrate on
particular topics. The day will conclude with a combined session involving all
three packages. The topics are:
Introduction: Basic syntax and capabilities
Numerical computation: Matrices, differential equations, floating point
Symbolic computation: Computer algebra and calculus
Graphics: Two and three dimensional plots, images, "visualization"
Programming: Larger scale software development
Specialized packages, Toolboxes: third party products.
Seats are limited. Please register before June 7, 2001. Registration fee
includes coffee breaks and lunch on Sunday, July 8. Register via the Web at
