# MATH-UA 252 Numerical Analysis

4 points. Spring term.

## Course Description

In numerical analysis one explores how mathematical problems can be analyzed and solved with a computer. As such, numerical analysis has very broad applications in mathematics, physics, engineering, finance, and the life sciences. This course gives an introduction to this subject for mathematics majors. Theory and practical examples using Matlab will be combined to study a range of topics ranging from simple root-finding procedures to differential equations and the finite element method.

## Prerequisites

MATH-UA 123 Calculus III or MATH-UA 213 Math for Economics III (for Economics majors), MATH-UA 140 Linear Algebrawith a grade of C or better.
