Kurt Frischmuth: Intro to Numerics

Kurt Frischmuth


Introduction to Numerical Analysis

for Computational Science and Engineering


After Dr. W. Peters' retirement, I take over the subject.
Starting from October 2017, on this page there will be information and materials
on Numerics for students of Computational Science and Engineering.


The lecture covers basic numerical methods such as
interpolation, approximation, equation solving, matrix decompositions and eigenvalue problems.
Concepts like stability, consistency, condition and numerical cost will be discussed as well.

The lecture comes with a tutorial.
It will be essential to implement methods and test them on examples - individually.
Skills in calculus, algebra, computer science and programming are required (on BSc level), but not part of this subject.
