MATH 375, Introduction to Numerical Computing

General description

The goal of this course is to introduce basic techniques for efficiently computing numerical solutions of different types of linear and non-linear problems. Topics covered include: root finding, direct and iterative methods, interpolation, integration, differentiation, and ordinary differential equations. We will learn and use MATLAB to implement numerical algorithms.
