Objectives

The course is intended to integrate and extend the knowledge achieved by the course of numerical analysis, with particular attention to the solution of boundary value problems. Fundamental objective is to present the various techniques of numerical modeling, both revisiting the classic algorithms of numerical analysis, and introducing new methods of approximation.

Teaching methods

Lectures and exercises in the Computer Lab

Examination

Oral exam with discussion of elaborates Matlab

Prerequisites

Numerical Analysis and basic knowledge of MATLAB language are the prerequisites of the course of Numerical Modeling.
