2.086 Numerical Computation for Mechanical Engineers

Prereq: Physics I (GIR), Calculus II (GIR); Coreq: 18.03 or 2.087
U (Fall, Spring)
12 Units. REST

Covers elementary programming concepts, including variable types, data structures, and flow control. Provides an introduction to linear algebra and probability. Numerical methods relevant to MechE, including approximation (interpolation, least squares, and statistical regression), integration, solution of linear and nonlinear equations, and ordinary differential equations. Presents deterministic and probabilistic approaches. Uses examples from MechE, particularly from robotics, dynamics, and structural analysis. Assignments require MATLAB programming.Enrollment may be limited due to laboratory capacity; preference to Course 2 majors and minors.
