Required Text: Numerical Analysis, 8-th or 9-th edition (by R. L. Burden and J. D. Faires).
Syllabus:
In this course, we will learn some of the most basic concepts and methods in scientific computing.

Many physical phenomena are governed by differential equations. Newton's second law of motion is in general a set of second order time-dependent differential equations. In this course our main goal is to develop a number of tools for solving these and other equations numerically. Our main focus is in developing numerical methods for such purposes. Our text book is Numerical Analysis, 8-th or 9-th edition (by R. L. Burden and J. D. Faires). We will mostly cover the first 6 chapters of the text. There will be emphasis on matlab programming with up to 3 programming assignments.
