APPLIED MATH STUDENTS HAVE PRIORITY REGISTRATION; ALL OTHERS MUST WAIT UNTIL REGISTRATION PERIOD II.
Catalog Description:
Introduction to interpolation and approximation of data and functions by polynomials, piecewise polynomials, and trigonometric series. Covers aspects of implementation including FFTs and the chebfun software. Spectral methods for solving differential equations serve as main motivating application, along with other approximation problems.
