This course is an introduction to modern numerical methods.
Topics include polynomial and spline interpolation, numerical
integration and differentiation, numerical solution of nonlinear
equations and ordinary differential equations. Our goal will be to
understand how and when the methods work. The concept of numerical error
will be used to quantify the accuracy of approximation. We will also
study the stability and the efficiency of the algorithms.
Computer assignments will use Matlab, software produced
by The MathWorks. The Matlab language provides extensive library of
scientific function calls entirely built-in.
is available on Unix and Windows in the university computing labs.
The full set of manuals is on the web in
and also in
Adobe PDF format. The "Getting Started" manual is a good
place to begin and is available both in html
format and in Adobe
PDF format. The full reference manual as well as manuals for each
of the many toolboxes are all available.
Tutoring: The Mathematics Department offers a free tutoring service.
Math Assistance Center (MAC) is located on the second floor of the O’Hara Student Center.
Tutoring services and tutoring hours will be posted outside the MAC as well as on the web at MAC.
