Day & Time
TR 10:10am-11:25am
Points 3
Grading Mode Standard
Approvals Required None
Instructor Marc W Spiegelman
Method of Instruction On-Line Only
Course Description Prerequisites: (MATH UN1201) and (MATH UN2030) and (APMA E3101) and (ENGI E1006) or their equivalents. Programming experience in Python extremely useful. Introduction to fundamental algorithms and analysis of numerical methods commonly used by scientists, mathematicians and engineers. Designed to give a fundamental understanding of the building blocks of scientific computing that will be used in more advanced courses in scientific computing and numerical methods for PDEs (e.g. APMA E4301, E4302). Topics include numerical solutions of algebraic systems, linear least-squares, eigenvalue problems, solution of non-linear systems, optimization, interpolation, numerical integration and differentiation, initial value problems and boundary value problems for systems of ODEs. All programming exercises will be in Python.
