Objectives
1. KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
THE AIM OF THE COURSE IS TO DISCUSS THE MAIN PROBLEMS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EFFICIENT MATHEMATICAL SOFTWARE. IT IS DEVOTED TO THE THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE AND A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF THE MAIN NUMERICAL METHODS FOR THE BASIC ARGUMENTS, LIKE THE APPROXIMATION OF FUNCTIONS AND OF NUMERICAL DATA, THE COMPUTATION OF DEFINITE INTEGRALS, THE NUMERICAL SOLUTION OF NONLINEAR SYSTEMS AND THE COMPUTATION OF THE EIGENVALUES OF A MATRIX. MOREOVER THE STUDENT WILL LEARN THE METHODOLOGY FOR THE PROJECT OF EFFICIENT ALGORITHM AND THE USAGE OF SUITABLE ENVIRONMENTS FOR NUMERICAL COMPUTATION TO SOLVE PROBLEMS OF SCIENTIFIC COMPUTATION.
2. APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
BY MEANS OF THE PRACTICE IN THE LABORATORY, THE STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO EXPERIMENT NUMERICAL METHODS, TO ESTIMATE THE RELIABILITY OF THE OBTAINED RESULTS, TO DEVELOP ELEMENTS OF MATHEMATICAL SOFTWARE AND EVALUATE PERFORMANCES.
3. MAKING JUDGEMENTS
THE COURSE AIMS TO DEVELOP THE STUDENTS’ SKILL TO CHOOSE THE MOST SUITABLE NUMERICAL METHOD FOR ANY SPECIFIC PROBLEM TO SOLVE, AND TO COMPARE THE PERFORMANCES OF THE CODES BASED ON DIFFERENT NUMERICAL METHODS, RESPECT TO EFFICIENCY, ACCURACY AND STABILITY.
4. COMMUNICATION SKILLS
THE STUDENT WILL BE ABLE TO ILLUSTRATE THE KNOWN NUMERICAL METHODS, THEIR THEORETICAL PROPERTIES AND THE RELATED ALGORITHMS, AND HE SHOULD TO EXPLAIN THE PERFORMANCES OF THE NUMERICAL METHODS APPLIED TO SPECIFIC PROBLEMS. HE WILL BE ABLE TO WRITE THE INTERNAL AND THE EXTERNAL DOCUMENTATION OF THE DEVELOPED SOFTWARE.
5. LEARNING SKILLS
THE COURSE WILL GIVE THE BASIC MEANS TO LEARN NEW NUMERICAL METHODS AND TO USE OR DEVELOP NEW MATHEMATICAL SOFTWARE.
