COMP36212 Mathematical Systems and Computation syllabus 2020-2021
We will maintain a continuous feedback with students through active participation in the classroom. At the end of the course, there will be general feedback on the exam results.
- Assessment written exam (1 hours)
- Lectures (24 hours)
- Analytical skills
- Group/team working
- Oral communication
- Problem solving
On successful completion of this unit, a student will be able to:
ILO 1-Describe issues associated with finite precision computing (including floating point, integer, and mixed-precision arithmetic).
ILO 2- Explain techniques enabling improved accuracy in finite precision computing (e.g. stochastic rounding, multi-word arithmetic, extended precision).
ILO3-Describe and apply numerical algorithms for the solution of mathematical systems, including those described by ordinary differential equations, and linear algebra.
ILO 4-Describe and apply a range of optimisation and bio-inspired algorithms to find solutions to computationally hard problems (e.g. direct search, stochastic, and evolutionary algorithms).
ILO 5-Apply numerical techniques and knowledge of computational hardware to develop accurate and precise numerical solvers for a range of problems across multiple disciplines
