The goal Introducing students to principles of numerical mathematics, concept of error, numerical methods that are applicable in vocational topics in studies of electrical engineering. Introducing students to ways of choosing appropriate methods depending on nature of problem.
The outcome Students are able to apply algorithms of numerical mathematics in vocational topics in studies of electrical engineering, to choose appropriate methods for depending on nature of problem that they are solving and to handle error.
Contents of lectures Notion and types of error. Iterative processes. Theory of interpolation and approximation of functions. Numerical differentiation and integration. Numerical methods in linear algebra (solving linear equations, determination of inverse matrix). Numerical methods for solving nonlinear equations. Runge-Kutta method for solving differential equations. Application of mathematical software.
Contents of exercises Through examples, tasks and problems student learns how to apply theorems and basic concepts that are learnt through theoretical contents. Especially students are prepared how to solve problems that are occurring in vocational electrotechnical subjects.
