Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
After passing the course the student
- can identify certain problem types and pose them in a form suitable for numerical methods
- can choose an effective method for a given problem
- can estimate accuracy of the computed solutions
- understands the different factors affecting the accuracy of the solution
