Este curso trata la Teoría de Grafos desde el punto de vista de la modelización, lo que nos permitirá con posterioridad resolver muchos problemas de diversa índole. Presentaremos ejemplos de los distintos problemas en un contexto real, analizaremos la representación de éstos mediante grafos y veremos los algoritmos necesarios para resolverlos.

Resolveremos problemas que aparecen en la logística, la robótica, la genética, la sociología, el diseño de redes y el cálculo de rutas óptimas, mediante el uso de la Teoría de Grafos. Nuestro objetivo será presentar tanto los contenidos de la misma como la modelización de los casos planteados.

En cada tema comenzaremos presentando el problema a resolver. Posteriormente introduciremos la teoría y los algoritmos correspondientes, modelizaremos el problema propuesto y finalmente hallaremos su solución. En general explicaremos en qué consiste y cómo se deduce cada algoritmo, haciendo para ello una traza a modo de ejemplo.

Las unidades del curso son:

Unidad 1: Conceptos básicos de la Teoría de Grafos

Unidad 2: Accesibilidad

Unidad 3: Grafos ponderados

Unidad 4: Árboles

Los contenidos de este curso fueron reconocidos con una Mención Especial del I Premio Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deportes (España) – Telefónica L.S. - Universia a la iniciativa de MOOC's en MiríadaX.

edX Free English Computer Science Data Analysis & Statistics DavidsonX EdX Math

From simulating complex phenomenon on supercomputers to storing the coordinates needed in modern 3D printing, data is a huge and growing part of our world. A major tool to manipulate and study this data is linear algebra. This course is part 1 of a 2-part course.  In this part, we’ll learn basics of matrix algebra with an emphasis on application. This class has a focus on computer graphics while also containing examples in data mining. We’ll learn to make an image transparent, fade from one image to another, and rotate a 3D wireframe model. We’ll also mine data; for example, we will find similar movies that one might enjoy seeing. In the topic of sports ranking, we’ll be ready to participate in March Madness and submit our own mathematically generated brackets to compete against millions of others. The lectures are developed to encourage you to explore and create your own ideas either through your own programming but also with online tools developed for the course. Come to this course ready to investigate your own ideas.

Our world is in a data deluge with ever increasing sizes of datasets. Linear algebra is a tool to manage and analyze such data.

This course is part 2 of a 2-part course, with this part extending smoothly from the first. Note, however, that part 1, is not a prerequisite for part 2. In this part of the course, we'll develop the linear algebra more fully than part 1. This class has a focus on data mining with some applications of computer graphics. We'll discuss, in further depth than part 1, sports ranking and ways to rate teams from thousands of games. We’ll apply the methods to March Madness. We'll also learn methods behind web search, utilized by such companies as Google.  We'll also learn to cluster data to find similar groups and also how to compress images to lower the amount of storage used to store them. The tools that we learn can be applied to applications of your interest.  For instance, clustering data to find similar movies can be applied to find similar songs or friends. So, come to this course ready to investigate your own ideas.

Acerca de este curso

Dentro de la práctica educativa y clínica, las neurociencias y la psicología cognitiva son ejes fundamentales en la comprensión del comportamiento humano. Estas disciplinas aportan no solo modelos explicativos desde las ciencias básicas sino también desde su perspectiva aplicada. Teniendo en cuenta lo anterior, se pretende generar un espacio para comprender cómo el ser humano desarrolla y adquiere las habilidades de lectura y escritura así como las dificultades más comunes en su adquisición, desde una perspectiva neuropsicológica y cognitiva. Esto, con el fin de ofrecer pautas para identificar cuándo un niño presenta alguna o varias de estas dificultades y qué hacer para ayudarlo en su correcta apropiación.
