Solution of Equations in One Variable
2.1 Introduction
In Applied Mathematics, the most frequent problem is to find the values of x to satisfy the
equation
. Such values are called the roots of the equation and also known as the zeros
f ( x ) 0

Solutions of Ordinary Differential Equations
8.1 Introduction
We shall consider the solution of differential equations satisfying certain conditions. Problems in
which all the initial conditions are specified at one point only are called initial

Solution of System of Linear Equations
3.1 Introduction
System of linear equations occur in a variety of applications in the fields like elasticity, electrical
engineering, statistical analysis. The techniques and methods for solving system of l

Interpolation & Finite Differences
4.1 Introduction
In many occasions we are given only a few discrete set of values. To study the behaviour of the
function through those points a technique known as interpolation is introduced. Polynomial is a

Curve Fitting and Spline Interpolation
5.1 Introduction
The purpose of curve fitting is to find the parameter values of the model function that closely match the data.
The fitted curves can be used to estimate the values of one variable correspo

Numerical Differentiation
6.1 Introduction
Numerical differentiation is the process of finding derivatives numerically for a function
whose values are given in data form generated from an experiment. For evenly distributed
data points and if we
