**MA2264 NUMERICAL METHODS**

# How to study this subject

**AIM**

With the present development of the computer technology, it is necessary to develop efficient

algorithms for solving problems in science, engineering and technology. This course gives a

complete procedure for solving different kinds of problems occur in engineering numerically.31

**OBJECTIVES:**

At the end of the course, the students would be acquainted with the basic concepts in

numerical methods and their uses are summarized as follows:

The roots of nonlinear (algebraic or transcendental) equations, solutions of large system

of linear equations and eigen value problem of a matrix can be obtained numerically

where analytical methods fail to give solution.

When huge amounts of experimental data are involved, 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.

Since many physical laws are couched in terms of rate of change of one/two or more

independent variables, most of the engineering problems are characterized in the form of

either nonlinear ordinary differential equations or partial differential equations. The

methods introduced in the solution of ordinary differential equations and partial

differential equations will be useful in attempting any engineering problem.
