Root finding, interpolation, curve fitting, etc.
Root finding, interpolation, curve fitting, numerical differentiation and integration, multiple integrals, direct solvers for linear systems, least squares, rational approximations, Fourier and other orthogonal methods. [This official course description appears to differ with current standard practice, in that iterative solvers of linear systems are taught in this course, while "Fourier and other orthogonal methods" are postponed until Math 411.] For more detailed information visit the Math 410 Wiki page.
Students will master numerical solution of equations of one variable, interpolation, numerical differentiation, numerical integration, and numerical solution of linear systems.
