Courses

Theory and computer-oriented practice in obtaining numerical solutions of various problems. Topics include stability and conditioning, nonlinear equations, systems of linear equations, interpolation and approximation theory.

Numerical methods for solving parabolic, hyperbolic, and elliptic partial differential equations. The course will emphasize the concepts of consistency, convergence and stability. Topics include: implicit and explicit methods, truncation error, Von Newmann stability analysis, and the Lax equivalence theorem.
