Numerical Methods (COMPE 350) Course Details

Course Name: Numerical Methods
Code: COMPE 350
Pre-requisite Course(s):
Objective: This course is designed to teach fundamental numerical methods to provide approximate solutions for various engineering problems. This course also aims at teaching methods for the computer solution of some problems in linear algebra.
Content: Approximation in computations. Truncation and round-off error. Numerical solution of algebraic equations. Methods for the solution of system of linear equations: Gaussian elimination, LU-decomposition, and iterative methods. Matrix inversion. Interpolation: Lagrange, Newton, and Gauss formulas. Spline interpolation. Numerical integration: Trapezoidal, Simpson’s, and Romberg methods. Application programs will be developed in a laboratory environment using MATLAB.
