About this course

Skip About this course

The aim of the course is to familiarize the listeners with approaches in scientific visualization of the results obtained from mathematical modeling of various systems and processes using C# with concrete examples. A successful study of the course forms a holistic view of mathematical modeling algorithms and data structures for object description and the ability to use them in professional activity. A prototype of the program is being created for dynamic script execution. The basics of image processing are studied. An algorithm for dynamic programming in various problems is considered. The basics of client-server applications are discussed.

The course was created as part of the project on the modern educational program development provided by Ministry of Science and Higher Education (Russia).
