Advanced Numerical Methods (3204NSC)

This course will introduce numerical techniques that complement the analytic approach students will have encountered over their degree program. These are primarily discrete methods used to solve ordinary and partial differential equations, including finite difference and finite element schemes, and related theory such as the solution of sparse linear systems of algebraic equations. Students will also consider numerical and analytic approaches to applied problems, often of a discrete nature, such as linear and nonlinear recurrence relations, counting problems, and percolation problems. Students will be assessed on the basis of reports (in the form of electronic documents) outlining their work on various open-ended numerical problems. Prerequisites: 2202NSC Numerical Methods and MATLAB and 2203NSC Mathematics 2A. Advised Prerequisites: 2201NSC Linear Algebra and Differential Equations, 2204NSC Introduction to Mathematical Modelling, 3201NSC Advanced Differential Equations and Modelling.
