Objectives and Content
The course gives an introduction to basic computational algorithms from these areas: Solving equations and systems of equations (only linear), interpolation and approximation methods including curve fitting, numerical derivations, integration and extrapolation. Implementation of algorithms will play a central role. A short introduction to Matlab is given to be used in exercises.
To provide knowledge, understanding and ability of computational technics that are presented
