Numerical mathematics studies both the accuracy and stability of computations and thus plays a vital role whenever computers are used to solve quantitative problems. The main theme of this subject is an introduction to numerical computing, including floating point arithmetic, sources of error, ill conditioning and stability of algorithms. This theme is illustrated by developing and analyzing algorithms for solving non-linear equations and differential equations and for evaluating integrals. The practice classes will be conducted using MATLAB as a computational environment. No previous experience with MATLAB is required.
