MATH 3511: Numerical Analysis II

Description: This is a second introductory course to modern numerical techniques, i.e., a sequel to Mathematics 3510. It starts with a survey of modern approximation techniques and explains how, why, and when the techniques can be expected to work. Using this background the course covers difference equations, numerical methods for the solution of ordinary and partial differential equations, eigenvalue computations. The course demonstrates the relevance of numerical analysis to a variety of disciplines and provides ample practice for students. The applications chosen demonstrate concisely how numerical methods can be, and often must be, applied in real-life situations. The exercise sets include many applied problems from diverse areas of engineering, as well as from the physical, computer, biological, and social sciences.

Prerequisites: MATH 3510.
