MATH 4500 - Numerical Analysis


3 cr. 3 hr. Day course offered every other year.

Numerical analysis is concerned with devising algorithms for approximating the solutions to mathematically expressed problems. Topics are chosen from round off error and computer arithmetic, solutions of algebraic and transcendental equations, interpolation and polynomial approximation, numerical differentiation and integration, solutions of ordinary differential equations, solutions of linear systems, and approximation theory. Both mathematical rigor and computer solutions are stressed.

Prerequisite(s): MATH 2600 , MATH 3300 , programming ability in a numerical program language.
