A rough outlook of the course
1. Semiconductor technology standing behind construction of modern computers
2. Data representations.
a) Integers, unsigned and two's complement integers.
b) Non-integer numbers and floating point representations.
c) Characters, character sets, ASCII, ISO-8859, code pages and Unicode.
3. Command line in a Linux system
a) UNIX shell as a command interpreter.
b) Running programs and basic system tools.
c) File and directory management, access rights management.
d) Processing text data – simple editors, streams.
4. Introduction to artificial intelligence systems
5. LaTeX basics
a) Text documents in LaTeX, writing source code, compilation of source code
b) Mathematical formuale in LaTeX.
c) Creating tables, adding plots, formatting, references, indexes and tables.
6. Usage of program Mathematica: symbolic and numerical computation, function defining, fitting of the experimental data with a theoretical curve, preparation of the plots.
Main fields of studies for MISMaP
Students who complete the course will know how computers and computer networks work, understand standard representations of data and common data file formats, know how to operate the command line in a Linux system, how to use LaTeX and how to create function graphs and process experimental data using programming languages such as Python and Wolfram Mathematica
- 4 practical tests to be carried out using a computer.
