This course features complete lecture notes
and course MATLAB® scripts on the lecture notes page.
This course introduces students to MATLAB®. Numerical methods include number representation and errors, interpolation, differentiation, integration, systems of linear equations, and Fourier interpolation and transforms. Students will study partial and ordinary differential equations as well as elliptic and parabolic differential equations, and solutions by numerical integration, finite difference methods, finite element methods, boundary element methods, and panel methods.
Special software is required to use some of the files in this course: .zip, .m, .ds, .xls, .mat, and .mw.
