Numerical methods and analysis for ODEs with applications from mechanics, optics, and chaotic dynamics. Numerical methods for dynamic systems include Runge-Kutta, multistep and extrapolation techniques, methods for conservative and Hamiltonian systems, methods for stiff differential equations and for differential-algebraic systems. Methods for boundary value problems include shooting and orthogonalization, finite difference and collocation techniques, and special methods for problems with boundary or shock layers.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: MATH 4800 or CSCI 4800 or permission of instructor.

When Offered: Spring term odd-numbered years.

Cross Listed: Cross listed as MATH 6820. Students cannot obtain credit for both this course and MATH 6820.

Credit Hours: 4
