Contents of lectures Notion and types of error. Iterative processes. Numerical methods for solving nonlinear equations. Numerical methods in linear algebra (solving linear equations, determination of inverse matrix). Interpolation and approximation of functions. Numerical differentiation and integration. Runge-Kutta method for solving differential equations. Application of mathematical software.
Contents of exercises Through examples, tasks and problems student learns how to adequately choose and apply methods and basic concepts that are learnt through theoretical contents. Especially students are prepared to solve problems that are occurring in Electrical Engineering, by using mathematical tools.
