Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Get acquainted with fundamental concepts of numerical algorithms (approximations in numerical computation, conditioning, numerical stability) and with techniques for the analysis of numerical algorithms (perturbation theory). Study selected numerical algorithms in detail. Understand the interdependencies between problem data, numerical algorithm, implementation of the algorithm, hardware, performance and accuracy.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Three sets of homework problems (with theoretical and programming components - implementation, experimentation, analysis); selected presentations of your own solution to homework problems in class (online), occasional quizzes (online) in class; written test at the end of the semester.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the Covid-19 situation, the current plan (as of 14.9.2021) is as follows: This class will be given online except for the written test on 20.1.2022, which will be in presence.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

PLEASE NOTE: You have to participate (online) in the first class in order to guarantee your fixed spot in the course! If you do not participate in the first class you will be signed out to make space for other students currently on the waiting list.

Grading is based on how many points are achieved for each set of homework problems, for the quizzes and for the test. At least half of the maximum possible total number of points is required for passing the course.
