Introduction to Computational Science


Multerer M.

Course director

Basso M.



Computational science is an interconnected combination of computer science and mathematics in which we develop and analyse algorithms for solving important problems in science and engineering. In this course, students will learn principles and practices of basic numerical computations. This class will cover in particular: numerical solution of linear systems, interpolation and approximation, numerical quadrature, least squares and one dimensional non-linear equations.


Knowledge and understanding of basic numerical algorithms and their implementation.
