        ESPB 9.0 Status elective
        Condition Knowledge of classical mathematical analysis, notion of basic terms and methods of numerical analysis.
        The goal Introducing students to methods of approximation theory and ways of choosing appropriate methods depending on nature of problems, guiding students to independently conduct research and follow contemporary topics in this field.
        The outcome Students are capable to apply methods of approximation theory in electrotechnics and to conduct independent research and follow contemporary topics in this field.
        Contents of lectures Constructive elements and approaches in approximation theory. Orthogonal polynomials and weighted polynomial approximation. Fundamental three-term recurrence relation. Chebyshev system of functions and interpolation. Quadrature processes. Numerical construction of quadratures. Golub-Welsch algorithm. Applications in electrotechnics, signal processing and computer science.
        Contents of exercises Through examples, assignments and analysis of scientific papers, a student learns how to apply the basic concepts he has learned in the theoretical part. Likewise, the student is referred to the literature monitoring for writing seminar papers and scientific papers.
