Many mathematical models arising in various applications cannot be solved analytically. This course teaches fundamentals of numerical analysis, including a brief overview of numerical linear algebra, root finding methods, interpolation and approximation, and methods for solving ordinary differential equations. The course will focus on how numerical algorithms are constructed and analyzed in terms of their accuracy, efficiency, and stability. Students will use MATLAB to demonstrate the validity and/or failure of various approaches in different situations.
