ICYA-2001 Modeling and Numerical Analysis

There is a great amount of real engineering problems whose governing equations do not allow the development of exact analytical solutions. The solution of these problems requires the implementation of approximate solutions by means of numerical methods. This course presents an introduction to numerical methods and is centered in the implementation of computational algorithms for the solution of engineering problems using these approximate methods. Different topics that occur in the solution of engineering problems, such as equation roots, linear systems of equations, optimization, numerical integration and differentiation, and problems that involve the solution of ordinary and partial differential equations, will be studied.
