•Course Purpose
Numerical computation has a wide range of applications in physics, including analysis of experimental data, solution of a nonlinear equation that cannot be solved analytically and numerical simulation. In this class, we study the fundamentals of numerical algorithms. The goal is to understand the mathematical background of numerical algorithms .
