Math 4329 (14695): Numerical Analysis
Course DescriptionIn this course we will learn how to approximate the solutions to the mathematical problems which are traditionally deemed difficult to solve. In particular we study the functions which help us approximating the solutions such as Taylor Polynomials and Spline functions. Emphasis will be also laid on the accuracy of such approximations via the error analysis. We will also focus on solving large system of equations through algorithms including a discussion of how to numerically implement such algorithms. Students will simultaneously be trained in the theory and practice involved in solving large systems of equations and understand and interpret the quality of such solutions.
