LECTURER: NT Bishop
Many mathematical problems cannot be solved exactly and require numerical techniques. These techniques usually consist of an algorithm which performs a numerical calculation iteratively until certain tolerances are met. These algorithms can be expressed as a program which is executed by a computer. The collection of such techniques is called "numerical analysis".
An ability to program in MATLAB.
Systems of non-linear equations, two-dimensional cubic splines, numerical algebra, numerical computation of eigenvalues, numerical solution of ordinary and partial differential equations, finite differences, the finite element method, discrete Fourier transform algorithms.
ONE tutorial per week.
ONE class test, one project and ONE final examination.
