Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes
Learning Outcomes of UE
At the end of this teaching, the students will master the basis of numerical analysis in both its mathematical and implementation aspects. They will be able to use their knowledge to solve problems.
Content of UE
Numerical methods for root finding, numerical errors, linear systems, polynomial interpolation and least squares, ordinary differential equations.
Prior Experience
Continuity and differientiability of functions of a single real variable (including the assiated theorems, Taylor expansions,...), ability to solve linear ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients, linear algebra (linear applications, representation in a basis, linear systems,...), basic mechanics (Newton's laws). Ability to program in at least one computer lanbguage. Ability to perform rigorous and precise reasonings.
Type of Assessment for UE in Q1
Q1 UE Assessment Comments
Annual course.
Type of Assessment for UE in Q2
Q2 UE Assessment Comments
The evaluation of the project is worth 15% of the final mark. It is required to pass both the project and the oral exam. If it is not the case, the final mark is min{0.15 P, 0.85 O} where P (resp. O) is the mark on 20 obtained at the project (resp. at the oral exam).
Type of Assessment for UE in Q3
Q3 UE Assessment Comments
The evaluation of the project is worth 15% of the final mark. It is required to pass both the project and the oral exam. If it is not the case, the final mark is min{0.15 P, 0.85 O} where P (resp. O) is the mark on 20 obtained at the project (resp. at the oral exam).
