Course Description

Course Description

This course is an introduction to the numerical analysis. The primary objective of the course is to develop  the  basic  understanding  of  numerical  algorithms  and  skills  to  implement algorithms  to solve mathematical problems on the computer. 

Course Objectives:

The aims of the course are 

•   To provide a solid basis on the numerical approaches to computational problem solving;

•   To provide students with problem analysis and solving skills to be able to handle typical computational problems in practice.

                            

Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this subject students should be able to:

o    Derive schemes for different set ups of numerical problems 

o    Test for convergence of different schemes 

o      Correctly use the schemes to generate solutions to the numerical problems to the required precision
