MATH 8255 INTRODUCTION TO NUMERICAL METHODS (3 credits)
This course emphasizes the implementation of several numerical methods to problems that arise in science and engineering. It involves the application of the computer to solve mathematical problems using the following computational techniques: Taylor Series approximation, numerical differentiation, root-finding methods, interpolation, extrapolation, curve fitting, solution methods for matrix equations, numerical differentiation, numerical integration, and the solution of differential equations. (Cross-listed with MATH 3250).
Prerequisite(s)/Corequisite(s): MATH 1960 with a C or better.
