Introduction to Computational Methods
The course of Computational Methods is a basic course for undergraduate students of Computer Science and Technology. It takes all kinds of numerical methods for solving the mathematics problems as the research objects, as well as the convergence of algorithm, stability and error analysis.
With the rapid development of computer technology and computational mathematics methods, scientific computing has become an important means of scientific research. Many new computational disciplines have arisen, such as computational mechanics, computational physics, computational chemistry, and computational biology. Regardless of their backgrounds and meanings, to establish the appropriate mathematical models and design the calculation methods is necessary for scientific computing, which is the content of Computational Methods exactly. So it takes an important position in the field of scientific computing. The course of Computational Methods is a type of mathematics course, therefore it has the features of being abstractive and rigor. Moreover, it has closely related to computer applications, so it is a practical course.
