Official Course Description:
ESM4A is mandatory for students of EECS, and is also recommended as a home school elective for students who would like to get a short, one-semester introduction to Numerical Methods.
This course is a hands-on introduction to numerical methods. It covers root finding methods, solving systems of linear equations, interpolation, numerical quadrature, solving ordinary differential equations, the fast Fourier transform, and optimization. These methods are crucial for anyone who wishes to apply mathematics to the real world, i.e. computer scientists, electrical engineers, physicists and, of course, mathematicians themselves.
