Selected algorithms and their numerical analysis
MATH/AMSC 698T, Spring 2013
Course Information
Prerequisite: A graduate level one semester course in numerical analysis AMSC666/667; or permission of instructor.
Course Description (Preliminary)
The purpose is to complement the discussion of modern algorithms which are either left out or only partially covered in our NA courses.
Thus, AMSC666/667 will be prerequisite.
Among the topics to be discussed are the square root finder, the divide and conquer (and possibly the Toda flows) for calculation of eigenvalues,
DeltaSigma conversion, StrongStability Persevering ODE solvers, spectral convergence in approximation theory, various examples for numerical dispersive waves.
If time permits we will also discuss algorithms for edge detection, image processing, and compressive sensing.
The discussion on each topic is not intended to be comprehensive but to be selfcontained.
