TA: Zhao Wang; Email: email@example.com TAs office hours: M, W 1:00 - 2:30 PM. TAs office: HEC 308. Final Exam: Thursday December 10, 2009, 10:00 AM -12:50 PM. Course Objectives : Introduce numerical methods and numerical simulation for problem- solving in science and engineering. The course will emphasize three aspects, Figure 1: 1. The algorithmic approach of numerical methods such as: Polynomials, roots, and opti- mization; linear algebra; curve fitting; and integration and differentiation. 2. Applications of numerical methods in science and engineering. 3. Practical insights on how to use Matlab for problem-solving. Algorithmic aspects of numerical methods Applications Practical use of Matlab Figure 1: The three aspects of the course Prerequisites : Programming language (C, C++, Java), an undergraduate calculus class, an undergraduate probability and statistics class, an undergraduate linear algebra class, or con- sent of the instructor.
