The course introduces to basic numerical methods of interpolation and approximation of functions, numerical differentiation and integration, solution of transcendent and ordinary differential equations and systems of linear equations. Emphasis is put on estimation of errors, practical skills with the methods and demonstration of their properties using Maple and computer graphics.

Study targets:

Basic methods of approximation, numerical differentiation and integration, numerical solution to algebraic, transcendent and differential equations.

Course outlines:

1. Overview of the subject of Numerical Analysis
