Numerical Analysis and Computational Mathematics

MATH-456

Lecturer(s) :

Vazquez Hernandez Rafael

Language:

English

Summary

The course provides an introduction to scientific computing. Several numerical methods are presented for the computer solution of mathematical problems arising in different applications. The software MATLAB is used to solve the problems and verify the theoretical properties of the numerical methods.

Content

Keywords

Numerical Analysis; Computational Mathematics; numerical approximation; numerical algorithms; MATLAB.

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Analysis (Calculus); Linear Algebra.

Important concepts to start the course

Basic knowledge of MATLAB or GNU Octave software; basic programming.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Teaching methods

Ex cathedra lectures; theoretical and practical exercises in the computer room.

Expected student activities

Attending the lectures and exercise sessions. Solving and completing the assigned exercises during and after the exercise sessions.

Assessment methods

Written exam, in the computer room. The exam covers all the theoretical and practical arguments considered at the lectures and exercises. Part of the questions and problems are solved numerically with MATLAB; the exam includes the implementation and programming of numerical algorithms in MATLAB.
