Math / CS 375 - Introduction to Numerical Computing Fall 2011.


This is an introductory numerical analysis course. We study numerical methods to solve linear and nonlinear equations, to interpolate and approximate data, and to perform numerical integration and differentiation. We will learn and use MATLAB to implement all algorithms.

Time and place:

TR 12:30-13:45. Room: SMLC B59.
