Course Information for Math 541
This course introduces students to
numerical analysis. Students will use computers to solve
nonlinear equations, solve systems of linear equations,
approximate integrals, and fit data sets. This course
will primarily use MatLab for performing the numerical
computations, so basics of MatLab will be taught.
Practical examples will be used to demonstrate the
usefulness of this course for a variety of problems.
Details of the course and timelines are available on the HW Assignment page.
