The course is designed to acquaint students with the basics work in the mathematical programs Maple and MATLAB. The first part of the course is devoted to the algebraic system Maple and its use for for solving differential and integral calculus of one variable, linear algebra and arithmetic with complex numbers. The second part of the subject is devoted to MatLab program and its application in solving computational problems in engineering practice, particularly for signal processing. Next, there is an introduction to the analysis of electrical circuits in the program Maple with PraCAn package.

Study targets:

The course is designed to acquaint students with the basics work in the mathematical programs Maple and MATLAB for mathematical problems in technical branches. Classification: knowledge are tested on selected exercises. The total score of the tests determines the grade. More info:
