This course introduces numerical methods, especially the finite difference method for solving different types of partial differential equations. The main numerical issues such as convergence and stability will be discussed. It also includes introduction to the finite volume method, finite element method and spectral method. Prerequisite: An undergraduate numerical course such as MATH 350 and MATH 489 or consent of instructor.
[(MATH 350 with min. grade of C and MATH 489 with min. grade of C)]
