AbstractThis course will give an introduction to numerical methods, aimed at mathematics majors. It covers numerical linear algebra, quadrature, interpolation and approximation methods as well as their error analysis and implementation.
ObjectiveKnowledge of the fundamental numerical methods as well as
`numerical literacy': application of numerical methods for the solution
of application problems, mathematical foundations of numerical
methods, and basic mathematical methods of the analysis of
stability, consistency and convergence of numerical methods,
MATLAB implementation.
ContentRounding errors, solution of linear systems of equations, nonlinear equations,
interpolation (polynomial as well as trigonometric), least squares problems,
extrapolation, numerical quadrature, elementary optimization methods.
Lecture notesLecture Notes and reading list will be available.
LiteratureLecture Notes (german or english) will be made available to students of ETH BSc MATH.
