Course Description: This course introduces the subject of numerical analysis, i.e. the study of approximation algorithms for solving scientific problems by computation. The course is intended primarily for information science majors, who are interested in quantitative modeling of scientific phenomena, but is open and accessible to anyone interested in natural sciences, for instance mathematics majors, who can experience how the general concepts from calculus and linear algebra are applied in numerical algorithms, or for physics majors interested in numerical methods of theoretical physics. The course has three parts, the first is on issues of accuracy, precision, modeling, and program development, the second part consists of root finding, optimization, and numerical linear algebra, and the last part on calculus, ordinary and partial differential equations, and more complex problems. Lectures focus on numerical algorithms. Examples and assignments deepen understanding by providing computer programs and relevant problems to solve, along with pointers to available software. Knowledge of a programming language is needed to solve the assignments. Sample programs and program development assistance are provided in the C language. Assessment: Midterm assignment 40%, final assignment 40%, final test 20%.
