Numerical Analysis - MAT 339

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.
Prerequisites: MAT 213 and ENG 202 or CSC 212 or CSC 210 or CSC 215.
