This is an idiosyncratic, but modern course, math methods as used in research, described in video An ode in 15 stanzas - that complements ChaosBook online course, is intended to provide a graduate student with basic tools needed to tackle modern problems, `big data' problems in extreme dimensions, such as fluids or neuroscience: linear algebra, ODEs, discretizations, Fourier theory, discrete and continuous symmetries, probability, statistics, and chaos.
