TEACHING MATERIALS  AULAWEB 
Computational and Statistical Methods Laboratory (LMCS, code 90741) is worth 6 credits and takes place in the first semester of the 3rd year of the threeyear degree (L30)
The course aims to consolidate and expand the skills of calculation, statistical analysis and programming, aimed at analyzing and acquiring data in laboratory experiences.
The course deals with computational physics, addressing the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations and partial derivatives, and advanced methods of data analysis, dealing with Monte Carlo simulation rudiments, deepening the bestfit techniques and giving an overview of multivariate signal/background separation techniques.
The course also aims to extend the C++ programming skill (acquired during the first year) by more indepth study of ObjectOriented programming in C ++ and providing rudiments of Python and shell scripting. Higher level packages will be also used (ROOT, Octave / Matlab).
At the end of the course the student will be able, exploiting C ++, python or Matlab programming, to:
The course assume that computation skills contained in the first year coures are acquired.
Lectures and laboratory exercises.
Lectures schedule:
Notes / slides are provided during the course. A list of possible texts for further information is available on the course page on Aulaweb.

The final exam consists of two parts:
The exercises carried out and the tasks assigned during the year will contribute to the final evaluation.
METHOD OF ASSESSMENT
The final grade is formed by the evaluation during the year, the score of the computer test and the score of the oral exam (with weights 0.3 / 0.35 / 0.35).
EVALUATION DURING THE YEAR.
Attendance of the exercises is mandatory. If the student completes 7 out of 7 exercises the initial score is 18, if the student completes 6 out of 7 the score is 15. With less than 6 experiences completed the student is not admitted to the computer exam. The student can recover up to 3 experiences.
After each experience, a homework is assigned which is evaluated with a score from 0 to 15. The attendance score is added to the homework score thus forming the evaluation during the year.
CALCULATOR EXAM
The computer exam consists in developing programs to solve 2 problems out of the 3 proposed in 2 hours. The test is passed if a score higher than or equal to 15/33 is reported.
ORAL EXAM
The oral exam consists of two questions on different aspects of the program carried out. During the oral exam, the teachers verify the understanding of the fundamental teaching contents and the expository ability of the candidate.
