Computer Algebra Systems & Related Software Notes

### Topics in our Computer Algebra Systems & Related Software Notes PDF

In these “Computer Algebra Systems & Related Software Notes PDF”, you will study the usage of computer algebra systems (/Mathematica/MATLAB/Maxima/Maple) and the statistical software R. The basic emphasis is on plotting and working with matrices using CAS. Data entry and summary commands will be studied in R. Graphical representation of data shall also be explored.

The topics we will cover will be taken from the following list:

Introduction to CAS and Applications: Computer Algebra System (CAS), Use of a CAS as a calculator, Computing and plotting functions in 2D, Plotting functions of two variables using Plot3D and ContourPlot, Plotting parametric curves surfaces, Customizing plots, Animating plots, Producing tables of values, working with piecewise defined functions, Combining graphics.

Working with Matrices: Simple programming in a CAS, Working with matrices, Performing Gauss elimination, operations (transpose, determinant, inverse), Minors and cofactors, Working with large matrices, Solving system of linear equations, Rank and nullity of a matrix, Eigenvalue, eigenvector and diagonalization.

R – The Statistical Programming Language: R as a calculator, Explore data and relationships in R. Reading and getting data into R: Combine and scan commands, Types and structure of data items with their properties, Manipulating vectors, Data frames, Matrices and lists, Viewing objects within objects, Constructing data objects and conversions.

Data Analysis with R: Summary commands: Summary statistics for vectors, Data frames, Matrices and lists, Summary tables, Stem and leaf plot, Histograms, Plotting in R: Box-whisker plots, Scatter plots, Pairs plots, Line charts, Pie charts, Cleveland dot charts and bar charts, Copy and save graphics to other applications.
