Objectives

Students will learn to

  • to understand the main current challenges of applied mathematics and computer science (AM&CS);
  • to classify the models, methods and techniques of AM&CS, and understand the relationships between them;
  • to understand the R&D life cycle in the field of AM&CS;
  • to represent the possibility of AM&CS as the set of diffusion technologies in multidisciplinary projects;

  • to represent the system of financing and management of R&D in the field of AM&CS.

Contents

Course "Advances in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science" is considering AM&CS as integrated knowledge in terms of its place in the global R&D process. We discuss the evolution of AM&CS, current challenges, as well as forecasts on the development of this direction. The basic methods and models of R&D, studied art research glossary are considered and classified. Detailed questions of high-performance computing, supercomputing technologies and big data as technological bases of AM&CS are considered.

We study the modern concepts of eScience, eKnowledge and eEngineering, as well as translational information technologies. The global vision of R&D management and financing in the field of AM&CS is approached in respect to practical skills training grant applications and development of the project and reporting documentation. The examples of AM&CS applications to complex areas of science (eCity, eSociety, eHealth) are analyzed.

Format

Lectures and training seminars.

Assessment

Attendance is mandatory. Students cannot miss more than one class.

The course consists of 3 main sections. Each of them must be evaluated. To complete the course successfully you must submit 3 tasks at the seminars. The final grade depends on the engagement of a student in all activities within the course.
