Numerical Computing (Lecture)

Instructors: Olaf Schenk

Academic Programs: Bachelor of Science in Informatics

Workload: 6 ECTS


Numerical computing is an interconnected combination of computer science and mathematics in which we develop and analyze algorithms for solving important problems in science, engineering, medicine, and business---for example, simulating an earthquake , choosing a stock portfolio, or detecting cancer tumors in medical images. The students will learn principles and practices of basic numerical computation. This is a key aspect of scientific computation. This class will cover several topics, including: one-dimensional nonlinear equations; understanding and dealing with sources of error; linear equations and linear least-squares; data fitting; and ordinary differential equations. As much as possible, numerical methods will be presented in the context of real-world applications.
