Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

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 (mostly matrix algorithms) in detail. Understand the interdependencies between problem data, numerical algorithm, implementation of the algorithm, hardware, performance and accuracy.

Assessment and permitted materials

Three sets of homework problems (with theoretical and programming components - implementation, experimentation, analysis); test in the middle and in the end of the semester.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The maximum possible score is 100 points (12 per set of homework problems, 32 per test). At least 50 points are required for passing the course.

Examination topics

Material presented in class and contents of homework problems.
