Numerical Methods with MatLab
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: MATH141.
Restriction: Must be in Engineering: Fire Protection program.
A broad range of numerical methods are illustrated and applications related to engineering problems are implemented using Mat Lab thus providing a working knowledge of this computational tool. The topics covered in the course include: finding roots of equations with bracketing and open methods; solving linear systems of equations with matrices, Gauss elimination, LU decomposition, and iterative methods; linear regression, polynomial interpolation; numerical integration and numerical differentiation; ordinary and partial differential equations. Additional topics such as optimization, eigenvalues, Fourier analysis, splines, and Romberg integration may be included as time allows.
