Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Numerical methods for solving linear and nonlinear boundary value problems for differential equations. Single step and multi-step methods will be studied with attention given to stability and rate of convergence. The numerical techniques learned in this course enable students to work with mathematical software in the solution of scientific and engineering problems, numerical experimentation, and the presentation of effective algorithms.

EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of this course unit, students should be able to:

·      Explain numerical methods for solving linear and nonlinear boundary value problems for differential equations.

·      Apply single step and multi-step methods

·      Evaluate the stability and rate of convergence of numerical methods.

·      work with mathematical software in the solution of scientific and engineering problems, numerical experimentation, and the presentation of effective algorithms.
