MAT 371 Numerical Analysis

3 hours 

Introduction to various numerical approximation techniques and the concept of error. Schemes are developed for finding the approximate solutions of algebraic and transcendental equations. Numerical differentiation and integration, finite differences, interpolation and extrapolation, and asymptotic approximation are also discussed. Applications to various branches of science are made. Stress is on the usefulness and necessity of numerical computation.
