Engineering Information Processing
Prerequisite: ENES220 and MATH241; and permission of ENGR-Civil & Environmental Engineering department. Corequisite: MATH246. Credit only granted for: ENCE201 or ENCE203. Exploration of algorithms for solving problems in several important areas of numerical computing: roots of equations; matrix algebra and the systems of linear equations; function approximation, numerical differentiation and integration; and ordinary differential equations. Issues of solution accuracy, robustness, and efficiency are also considered. Numerical techniques are presented in the context of engineering applications, and example problems are solved using a variety of computer-based tools (primarily MATLAB).
