Master the calculus of curves and coordinate systems; approximate functions with polynomials and infinite series. Part 3 of 3. How did Newton describe the orbits of the planets? To do this, he created calculus. But he used a different coordinate system more appropriate for planetary motion. We [...]
Build foundational knowledge of data science with this introduction to probabilistic models, including random processes and the basic elements of statistical inference. The world is full of uncertainty: accidents, storms, unruly financial markets, noisy communications. The world is also full of data. Probabilistic modeling and the related field of [...]
El objetivo del curso es entender como ciertos conceptos matemáticos se utilizan de forma recurrente para analizar problemas financieros y de negocios. En la primera parte del curso se analiza el caso de las funciones lineales donde se introduce el concepto de pendiente para cuantificar la dependencia entre las [...]
This course teaches the principles and practices of big data for improving the reliability and the security of computing systems. It exemplifies the principles through real-world examples and provides challenging programming problems based on novel datasets.
We’ll implement (in Python) together efficient programs for a problem needed by delivery companies all over the world millions times per day — the travelling salesman problem. The goal in this problem is to visit all the given places as quickly as possible. How to find an optimal solution [...]
