The course introduces the theory and
applications of numerical approximation
techniques. Topics include: roots for non-linear equations, error analysis, Lagrange
polynomial interpolation, Newton’s divided
differences for approximation of functions,
numerical differentiation and integration and
least squares approximation. Computational
experiments in a programming language
are an integral component of the course.
