AIM
With the present development of the computer technology, it is necessary to develop
efficient algorithms for solving problems in science and engineering. This course gives a
complete procedure for solving different kinds of problems occur in Engineering
numerically.
OBJECTIVES
At the end of the course, the students would be acquainted with the basic concepts in
numerical methods. The uses of numerical methods are summarized as follows:
 The roots of nonlinear (algebraic or transcendental) equations which arise in
engineering applications can be obtained numerically where analytical methods
fail to give solution. Solutions of large system of linear equations are also
obtainable using the different numerical techniques discussed. The Eigen value
problem is one of the important concepts in dynamic study of structures.
 When huge amounts of experimental data are involved in some engineering
application, the methods discussed on interpolation will be useful in constructing
approximate polynomial to represent the data and to find the intermediate values.
 The numerical differentiation and integration find application when the function in
the analytical form is too complicated or the huge amounts of data are given such
as series of measurements, observations or some other empirical information.
 Many physical laws are couched in terms of rate of change of quantity. Therefore
most of the engineering problems are characterized in the form of nonlinear
ordinary differential equations. The methods introduced in the solution of ordinary
differential equations will be useful in attempting any engineering problem.
 When the behavior of a physical quantity is expressed in terms of rate of change
with respect to two or more independent variables, the problem is characterized
as a partial differential equation. The knowledge gained may be used in solving
any problem that has been modeled in the form of partial differential equation.
