AOE 2074 Computational Methods  Revised 2/4/05
Primary Learning Objectives
Upon completion of the course the student will be able to solve mathematical
models of physical systems using numerical methods, specifically
1. Estimate error magnitudes, distinguish between round off and truncation
errors, and calculate absolute and relative, true and approximate errors in
numerical computations.
2. Find roots of equations using bracketing and open methods; explain the
differences between the two methods and point out the advantage of each
method.
3. Solve linear algebraic equations using Gauss elimination, LU decomposition,
and the GaussSeidel method; as well as perform pivoting to reduce error;
explain the differences between the methods and understand the advantages
of the methods.
4. Fit curves to data using linear least squares regression, data linearization,
and polynomial regression; explain the advantage and disadvantage of using
higher order polynomials.
5. Interpolate polynomials and derive splines for interpolation; explain the
benefits of using splines.
6. Integrate functions using the trapezoidal rule, Simpson’s rules, Romberg
integration, and GaussQuadrature ; explain the differences between the
methods and understand the advantages of the methods.
7. Numerically solve boundary and initial value ODEs.
8. Read, write and modify structured professionalstandard code to perform the
above techniques.
