MA1207 Numerical Analysis

Single subject course, 7.5 ECTS credits, First cycle, spring semester 2012
This course occasion will not start spring semester 2012!

Overview

The student should get oneself knowledge in numerical methods to evaluate solutions of such mathematical tasks that cannot be computed analytically. Within telecommunications, signal processes, etc. some technical problems are formulated by means of mathematical models that contain large sets of data, often given as estimates. To find approximated solutions for these problems with the greatest accuracy one studies the technique of building algorithms consisted of regularly repeated steps.

Learning methods

The teaching comprises lectures and exercises/laboratory lesson. Teamwork is desirable when solving problems of the laboratory lesson. The project has to be solved individually.

Work placement

No work placement is included in the planned learning activities. BTH is aiming for a close contact with the surrounding community when developing courses and programmes.

Time allocation

On average, a student should study 200 hours to reach the learning outcomes. This time includes all the various available learning activities (lectures, self studies, examinations, etc.). This estimation is based on the fact that one academic year counts as 60 ECTS credits, corresponding to an average student workload of 1 600 hours. This may vary individually.
