About the content

6.00.2x will teach you how to use computation to accomplish a variety of goals and provides you with a brief introduction to a variety of topics in computational problem solving . This course is aimed at students with some prior programming experience in Python and a rudimentary knowledge of computational complexity. You will spend a considerable amount of time writing programs to implement the concepts covered in the course. For example, you will write a program that will simulate a robot vacuum cleaning a room or will model the population dynamics of viruses replicating and drug treatments in a patient's body.

Topics covered include:

  • Advanced programming in Python 3
  • Knapsack problem, Graphs and graph optimization
  • Dynamic programming
  • Plotting with the pylab package
  • Random walks
  • Probability, Distributions
  • Monte Carlo simulations
  • Curve fitting
  • Statistical fallacies
