MATH 573 - Reliable Mathematical Software

Course Description: 

Many mathematical problems cannot be solved analytically or by hand in a reasonable amount of time; so, turn to mathematical software to solve these problems. Popular examples of general-purpose mathematical software include Mathematica, MATLAB, the NAG Library, and R. Researchers often find themselves writing mathematical software to demonstrate their new ideas or using mathematical software written by others to solve their applications. This course covers the ingredients that go into producing mathematical software that is efficient, robust, and trustworthy. Students will write their own packages or parts of packages to practice the principles of reliable mathematical software.
