学生へのメッセージ
This course will be an introductory survey of a variety of topics in classical and modern physics. As part of the Essential course series, Essential Maths I (Statistics) and II (modeling ODE and PDE) are supposed to endow/increase capability to model concrete problems with mathematical equations. Essential Math II focuses on the use of a math software, and through its visualization functionality to learn/put into practice basic methods of resolution. Mathematical notions will be introduced formally, but main theorems will be stated in a concrete way. Most proofs will be omitted, in particular only basic notions of Calculus and of Linear Algebra are expected for this course.

英語でのEssentialコースシリーズの一つとして、Essential数学 I (統計学)とII (数理モデル入門)は、方程式などで具体的な問題をモデル化する力を向上させることを目的としています。Essential 数学IIは数学ソフトの利用を中心にしていて、視覚化機能を使って基礎的な解法を学び、適用できるようにします。数学的定義については、主な定理は具体的に記述し、正式な証明はほとんど省きますので、初等の微分積分と線形代数の知識だけが必要とされます。
