The course deals with methods for approximation of functions, derivatives and integrals, with methods for solving linear and nonlinear algebraic equations, with methods for solving ordinary/partial differential equations with initial and boundary conditions, and with methods for experimental data evaluation. By learning these numerical algoritmuss students will gain insight into problem formulation and develop the ability to derive a problem solution and estimate its accuracy. During the course, the student elaborates two individual projects.

Aim of the course

Students will be able to formulate mathematical models using algebraic or differential equations. They will gain an overview of the commonly used numerical methods and they will learn how to determine the accuracy of numerical solutions. The student will use numerical methods to solve specific application problems
