Pic- up an! other boo- on numerical anal!sis from librar! to gain greater depth on the math of numerical techni.ues. /umerical techni.ues using computers have led to po0erful methods to solve problems. It is difficult to find solutions to man! problems using anal!tical techni.ues. /umerical techni.ues come to our rescue to solve man! of these problems. 1uccess of these techni.ues is often limited onl! b! the speed of computers. $dvent of computers together 0ith numerical techni.ues have also led to discover! of phenomena that 0ould other0ise have never ta-en place. In this course% 0e 0ill • &earn numerical methods to find roots% to carr! out interpolation% to calculate integrals% to find solutions of ordinar! differential e.uations% and partial differential e.uations. • $ppl! these methods to solve ph!sics problems • 2rite computer codes to implement various methods. • arr! out e3periments 0ith codes for getting to the bottom of the ph!sics of a problems E0er1 2ee. t*ere 2'(( &e t2o (e)tures and t2o (a& sess'ons3
