Phone: (805) 893-3681. E-mail: [email protected] URL: http://www.math.ucsb.edu/~cgarcia/Courses/Math104A W09 Office Hours: Tuesday and Thursday, 10:00am-11:30am Teaching Assistant: There is not T.A. for this course. Textbook: Numerical Analysis , by Richard L. Burden and J. Douglas Faires, 8th edition. Course description: This is the first part of a three-quarters introductory course on Numerical Analysis. This quarter we will study numerical methods for the solution of nonlinear algebraic equations, interpolation, extrapolation, numerical differentiation and integration, and numerical solution of ordinary differential equations. Although the emphasis will be in applications, the course will have a strong theoretical component. By the end of the course, the following will be expected: 1. Convergence of a numerical algorithm: What it means, and how to determine whether the algorithm converges or not. 2. A solid knowledge of Approximation Theory: (a) Polynomial Interpolation....
