Learning outcomes of the course unit

The students should understand the basic principles of numerical deterministic and stochastic calculations. They should understand the principle of iteration methods for solving the equation f(x)=0 and systems of linear algebraic equations mastering the calculation algorithms. They should learn how to get the basics of interpolation and approximation of functions to solve practical problems. They should be acquainted with the principles of numerical differentiation to be able to numerically solve boundary problems for ordinary differential equations. They should understand numerical calculations of definite integrals. They should bu also able to apply such knowledge to particular direct, sensitivity and inverse engineering problems.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations - lectures, seminars.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Successful completion of the scheduled tests and submission of solutions to problems assigned by the teacher for home work. Unless properly excused, students must attend all the workshops. The result of the semester examination is given by the sum of maximum of 70 points obtained for a written test and a maximum of 30 points from the seminar.
