Lecture:on Tuesdays, 7:30 - 9:00 hrs., G02-111        on Thursdays, 7:30 - 9:00 hrs., G02-111        
Tutorial:on Mondays , 9:15 - 10:45 hrs., G02-106        


The lecture will show the pratical implementation of standard numerical algorithmns. We focus on the special properties of the float-pointing arithmetics and difficulties on reformulating the algorithms in a highlevel programming language such as C. Utilities for searching errors and post proccessing of results will be explained too.


Criteria for getting a course assessment:
  • at least 50% of all possible points from the homework
  • at least 50% of the points in one homework ( on n-1 of n homework sheets)
  • demonstrate and explain at least one exercise in the tutorial
Other possibilities to get an assessment will be announced in the lecture.
