Computational Mathematics

3.00 crs.

This course develops the computational procedures fundamental to numeric applications. Topics include, but are not limited to, error analysis, numerical solutions of non-linear equations, systems of linear equations using direct and iterative methods, polynomial interpolation, quadrature, least squares curve fitting, and numerical solutions of ordinary differential equations. This course does not count as a mathematics elective for the Mathematics major. It is a requirement for the Computational Mathematics major and the Computational Science minor.
