Description

This course looks at a variety of methods for solving important computational problems that arise in science, engineering and commerce. In addition to applications, we will look at the methods' basic theoretical properties (stability, accuracy, computational complexity, convergence). During the course, you will learn about the performance of the methods through examples and counterexamples that highlight their pros and cons.

Pre-requisites

1) Either MATH201 or
EMTH210; AND 2) One of MATH202, MATH203, MATH240, MATH270, EMTH211 or
EMTH271. With the permission of the Head of School a high grade in either MATH201 or
EMTH210 will suffice.
