Instructor : Anil
We will define Laplacians on networks and meshes and apply these to
scientific computing, machine learning, and computer graphics.
Class will include sessions on Python programming, the language to be
used for our experiments.
No prior experience in Python or numerical analysis required.
Lecture Notes: Theory : printed copy handed out
in class; Lab : labnotes made available on the subversion (svn)
repository for the class.
Class Format: Lectures and lab sessions by
instructor. Tuesdays will be lab sessions in CSIL computer lab, Room
