Course Description

This course provides a comprehensive and practical background for students interested in continuous mathematics for computer science. The goal is to prepare students for higher-level subjects in artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, graphics, and other topics that require numerical computation. The course focuses on tying together the underlying mathematical principles, numerical algorithms, and how they are used to solve problems computationally. Assignments consist of both conceptual problems and coding portions completed in Python.
