CSC/MAT 320 - 3 Semester Hours
Numerical Analysis I
The use of numerical methods to solve mathematical problems such as the solutions of equations, interpolation, differentiation, and integration. Computer proficiency is gained by programming the solutions, studying algorithm efficiency, error propagation.
MAT 220 and MAT 230 and CSC 212
The subject of numerical analysis deals with computational methods to approximate, in an efficient manner, the solutions to mathematical problems that do not have a an analytic solution. Such mathematical problems occur in physical problems. As such, numerical analysis is required in the science and engineering disciplines. Numerical models are also used to solve economics problems.
