The two-semester course series, MAPL/CMSC 666 and MAPL/CMSC 667, is a graduate
level introduction on numerical analysis. Its primary subject matter
is the mathematical analysis of numerical methods in scientific
and engineering computing. Topics to be covered in this course
series include approximation and interpolation of functions, numerical integration,
numerical linear algebra, systems of nonlinear algebraic equations,
numerical optimization, and numerical solutions of ordinary and partial
differential equations. This course series serves to prepare beginning
graduate students for the numerical analysis qualifying exam.
