The Class Tests are scheduled to take place in Week 4 and Week 10 of the teaching period. The specific dates intended are:
PLEASE NOTE: The class tests will take the place of the scheduled 11.00am on these two dates (the 15.00 lecture will be as usual). Please also be aware of the changed location(s) for these two tests.
(These are single pdf slide per page. In total 293 pages. Note that the introduction as presented in the first lecture will use 15 slides. The reasons for the two slide lacuna will, one hopes, become clear.)
Note:Since these are for revision these are sans answers.
Lecture streams will be viewable from HERE once ready.
Please note that in view of the unsatisfactory technical failings involved with VITAL association, lecture streams will NOT be available via the module VITAL pages.
A textbook is under preparation (and is currently of the order of 450 pages with one-two chapters to write and bookkeeping matters, e.g. indices). In view of the cavalier attitude to copyright ownership (vide lecture capture policy), this will not be available on-line until discussed and agreed with publishers. All material relating to this book has
These largely refer to methods discussed in Part 6 of the module, however, useful tools for symbolic differentiation & integration (Part 3) and determination of polynomial roots (Part 2) are also provided on some sites.
Python resources include NumPy. Information about using and obtaining this is provided here.
Tutorials on programming in Python using matrix features are also available.
There is a huge collection of resources relating to Chaos, Fractal, Iterative techniques for algorithmic composition and other aspects of Computer Creativity as mentioned as an active application of Complex Number theory in AI a summary of these has been compiled here
