Course Information

Prerequisite: Comp. Sci. W3210, or Math E1210 with permission of instructor. Major topics of scientific computations: properties of floating point arithmetic, numerical stability and conditioning, interpolation, integration and approximation of scalar functions, nonlinear equations, and ordinary differential equations. Also, computational methods of linear algebra for solving systems of linear equations, linear least squares, and the eigenvalues. The computational complexity of some of these problems is discussed. The computer implementation of algorithms is stressed.
