Omschrijving  Within various science disciplines, models are formulated in terms of mathematical equations. However, many mathematical problems cannot be solved analytically (with pen and paper), because the calculations are too difficult, or simply too much work. Moreover, in many cases there is no analytic solution to these problems at all. Numerical Mathematics provides the methods and techniques to approach the solution in a numerically (in numbers) sufficiently accurate way. With current computers, the possibilities in this respect have increased dramatically and simulation software based on these techniques is used in the development of many products. In this course the following fundamental techniques will be discussed:

Onderwijsvorm 
Hoorcollege (LC), Practisch werk (PRC)
(There are six obligatory deadlines regarding computer practica during the lecture period.) 

Toetsvorm 
Practisch werk (PR), Schriftelijk tentamen (WE)
(For each practicum the student can earn a maximum of 3 points (0=not yet done, 1=bad, 2=moderate, 2.5=good, 3=excellent). For the exam the student can earn a maximum of 72 points. Together with 10 free points this adds up to a total of 100 points. Final grades will be rounded according to half points, except for the final grade 5.5.)

Entreevoorwaarden  The course unit assumes prior knowledge acquired from Calculus for IEM (1st year IEM) and Linear Algebra and Multi Variable Calculus for IEM (1st year IEM). The course unit prepares students for the course Product design by the Finite Element method (1st year MSc IEM), in which the learning objectives attained are required as prior knowledge. 

Opmerkingen  In period 1a the course is offered for the IEM programme and in period 2a the course is offered for the BMT programme.
