COSC 3122.03 Introduction to Numerical Computations II (same as AS/SC/MATH3242.03)

Section M  Winter          Tue, Thu 10:00-11:30
Section N  Winter          Wed 19:00-22:00
Section N is an Atkinson course. Students may complete this course for Arts or Science credit. However, Section N may differ slightly from Section M. For instance, Section N may have a different examination time which is not posted in the regular examination schedule.
The course includes a study of algorithms and computer methods for differentiation, integration, and solution of ordinary differential equations. Nonlinear equations of one variable, systems of nonlinear equations, optimization of functions of one and several variables and their relation to nonlinear equations are also covered. The emphasis of the course is on the development of numerical algorithms, the use of intelligent mathematical software and the interpretation of the results obtained on some assigned problems.

Topics covered may include the following.
