3. Course contents *

In this course several important classes of numerical methods will be presented for the solution of initial value problems for ordinary differential equations. Various crucial aspects, such as stability, consistency, convergence and step size selection, will be discussed. Practical experience with the numerical methods is obtained using the software package Matlab.
