This course introduces students to the design, analysis, and implementation of numerical algorithms designed to solve mathematical problems that arise in the real-world modeling of physical processes. Topics will include several categories of numerical algorithms such as solving systems of linear equations, root-finding, approximation, interpolation, numerical solutions to differential equations, numerical integration, and matrix methods. Prerequisite: MATH351 - Linear Algebra. Recommended: COMS103 - Intro to Programming I.
MATH380 is a 4 credit course.
