At the start of this course the student should have acquired the following competences:

an active knowledge of

an active knowledge of

- Dutch

- English

The student has to master several topics of calculus, including functions, derivation, integration, limiting behavior, series, vectors and matrices, complex numbers, polar coordinates, equations of lines and planes.

- The student must understand the different aspects of numerical computing and the problems this introduces.
- The student must have knowledge about the different methods.
- The student must be able to stipulate the differences between these methods.
- The student is able to recognize a numerical problem and select the proper method that should be used.
- The student can justify the chosen method based on the studied properties of each method.
- The student must be able to correctly interpret the numerical results.

This course builds on Numerical analysis. We focus on a selection of the following numerical approximation techniques:

- polynomial and spline interpolation
- solving a non-linear equation
- systems of linear equations
- least squares problems
- function approximation
- Fourier transformation
- optimization
- Gaussian quadrature
- random number generation

An introduction is provided for each technique, after which the different solution methods are discussed. Several mathematical and numerical aspects are treated, such as controlling roundoff errors, computing sensitivity and complexity. Finally, an illustrative example accompanies every technique.

The course has an international dimension.
