Excerpts from the Course Description:

This course serves as an introduction to applied numerical mathematics. Numerical analysis, roughly speaking, is concerned with finding approximate numerical solutions to problems for which we lack sufficient data or have no analytic solution: for example, we will explore methods of finding approximate roots of functions for which we have no closed form solution; we will examine algorithms which approximate the integral of a "black box" function; we will use iterative solvers to find the approximate solutions to linear systems; we will use the method of least squares to find the "best" function to approximate a set of data points.
