numericalmethodsguy on YouTube

Post by SSCBen » Tue May 05, 2009 2:53 am

I recently stumbled on this guy on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=numericalmethodsguy&view=playlists

He's a professor at the University of South Florida who made a great number of videos about numerical methods that are useful in engineering and physics.

While I realize most people here probably don't care, I'm willing to bet a number of the more engineering-oriented folks here would find these methods very useful.

Looks like he covers a broad range topics.

I'll have to actually watch them later. Thanks for the link.

On a similar note, I've been downloading video lectures. MIT, UC Berkeley, and Stanford have fairly good selections, though, they seem focused on electrical engineering and computer science (which I still find interesting nonetheless). NPTEL has some very nice video lectures as well (3000+ of them) that focus more on mechanical engineering.

As Flash on Linux is terrible I've been downloading the videos on YouTube. This batch download script is very helpful: http://bitbucket.org/rg3/youtube-dl/wiki/Home

Run the script and give it a video URL or a playlist URL. It also can download a list of URLs from a text file.
