Numerical computing is an interconnected combination of computer science and mathematics in which we develop and analyze algorithms for solving important problems in science, engineering, medicine, and business – for example, simulating an earthquake, choosing a stock portfolio, or detecting cancer tumors in medical images. The students will review the principles and practices of linear algebra, calculus, scientific computing, probability and statistics. The course is intended as a quick refreshment for incoming Master students in Computational Science.
