Topics
# Topics Covered in Math 448/548, CptS 430/530

- What is numerical analysis?
- floating point arithmetic, roundoff errors
- solution of linear systems, sensitivity, condition number
- solution of nonlinear equations and systems of equations
- Lagrangian interpolation
- numerical integration
- numerical differentiation
- numerical solution of differential equations, initial and boundary value problems

### There is no required textbook for this course. I plan to make
recommendations about supplemental reading as we go. Probably we will
tap some of the vast amount of information that is available on the
web.
