Computational methods allow biomedical engineers to analyze complex biomedical data and develop realistic models of biomedical systems. This course will introduce you to the fundamental computational methods used to solve biomedical problems and show the pitfalls that can occur when doing numerical analysis.
1. know the basic programming control structures (for, while, if/then) and how to use them together in MATLAB to solve specific problems (computational thinking).
2. be fluent in the basic vocabulary of numerical methods and select the most appropriate numerical method for a given problem.
3. be able to implement and validate numerical methods for differentiation/integration, interpolation, linear systems, regression, optimization, and differential equations.
4. be able to develop computer programs to analyze real biomedical data or model biomedical systems
