These are the course notes associated with my graduate-level course called Scientific Computing, given in the Department of Psychology at the University of Western Ontario.
The goal of the course is to provide you with skills in scientific computing: tools and techniques that you can use in your own scientific research. We will focus on learning to think about experiments and data in a computational framework, and we will learn to implement specific algorithms using a high-level programming language (MATLAB).
Learning how to program will significantly enhance your ability to conduct scientific research today and in the future. Programming skills will provide you with the ability to go beyond what is available in pre-packaged analysis tools, and code your own custom data processing, analysis and visualization pipelines. The course (and these notes) are organized around using MATLAB12, a high-level language and interactive environment for scientific computing.
