Lecture 1 3 Grade Weight of different activities Lecture 1 4 Lecture 1 5 z The textbook covers five categories of numerical methods: Lecture 1 6 ecture 1 z Motivation for the use of mathematical software packages z From Models to Analytical and to Numerical Simulation z Example Lecture 1 7 Motivation z Science and engineering demand a quantitative analysis of physical phenomena. Such an analysis requires a sophisticated mathematical apparatus. z Computers are very helpful; several software packages for mathematical software exist. z Specialized packages such as Ellpack for solving elliptic boundary value problems. z General-purpose systems are: z (i) Mathematica of Wolfram Research; z (ii) Maple of Maplesoft; z (iii) Matlab of Mathworks); and z (iv) IDL. Lecture 1 8 athematica All-purpose mathematical software package. It integrates z swift and accurate symbolic and numerical calculation, z all-purpose graphics, and z a powerful programming language. It has a sophisticated ``notebook interface'' for documenting and displaying work. It can save individual graphics in several graphics format....
