Numerical Methods Courses
In the study of numerical methods, we can make a general distinction between a set of methods such as solving linear systems of equations , solving matrix eigenvalue problems , interpolation , numerical integration and finding the roots or zeros of equations , which can be somewhat considered as the building blocks for larger that arise in engineering/applied mathematics/physics. For example the problem of solving ordinary differential equations , optimisation and solving integral equations . But from the point of view of aplied mathematics or engineering, erhaps the most significant problems in numerical methods is the solution of partial differential equations by Finite Difference Methods , Finite Element Methods or Boundary Element Methods .
The study of the behaviour of numerical methods is called numerical analysis. This is a mathematical subject that considers the modelling of the error in the processing of numerical methods and the subsequent re-design of methods.
