The course belongs to the area of Scientific Computing which has applications in various disciplines. The numerical simulation is an important tool for the study of scientific problems arising from several disciplines such as Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Biology and Economics. Most of these problems result in solving a mathematical problem, for example, in solving a large system of linear algebraic equations, which can only be solved by numerical methods. The aim is to equip students with the knowledge to develop software for the numerical solution of basic mathematical problems.
