COURSE AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The course gives detailed analysis of core methods of numerical linear algebra. We stress the details of method development, numerical analysis and practical use in selected real world engineering applications. The students will gain basic understanding of fundamental issues of numerical approximation, stability etc. and learn how to analyse them using mathematical analysis.
