Syllabus Description:

Survey of practical numerical solution techniques for ordinary and partial differential equations. Emphasis will be on the implementation of numerical schemes to practical problems of the engineering and physical sciences. Methods for partial differential equations will include finite difference, finite element and spectral techniques. MATLAB will be used to demonstrate the methods and for assignments.

Prerequisites:
Solid background in ODEs and familiarity with PDEs and MATLAB. AMATH 301 or the sequence AMATH 351-352-353. Or instructor permission.

Textbook: Optional

Additional information: To Be Posted.

 

Catalog Description: 
Project-oriented computational approach to solving problems arising in the physical/engineering sciences, finance/economics, medical, social, and biological sciences. Problems requiring use of advanced MATLAB routines and toolboxes. Covers graphical techniques for data presentation and communication of scientific results. Prerequisite: either a course in numerical analysis or permission of instructor.
