Learning outcome

A student successfully meeting all the learning objectives of this course

  1. will have developed knowledge and general competence in numerical methods, in particular will have familiarity with selected algorithms, knowledge of how these algorithms are developed and analysed; will have familiarity with central concepts such as error sources, convergence and stability.
  2. will be able to choose a suitable numerical algorithm for a given mathematical problem, to implement this method, and to critically evaluate the result; will acquire the ability of developing (further) simple numerical algorithms and to analyse these.

The exam and the compulsory assignments are designed to test the achievement of the learning outcome.
