Students will learn how to use the EXCEL and STATISTICA programs to apply statistics, study the basic notions of regression, analysis of relationships, analysis of time series. Next they will acquaint themselves with the methods used to solve non-linear equations, iteration methods used to solve systems of linear and non-linear equations, to interpolate functions by polynomials and cubic splines, learning how to numerically differentiate, solve boundary problems in second order ordinary differential equations by the method of grids and by numeric integration.
