Basic Numerical Methods

7.5 credits

Numerical Analysis is considered to be part of both Mathematics and Computer Science. The subject comprises development and application of methods for numerical solutions of problems that are mathematically formulated as well as analysis of their theoretical and computational properties. Subareas included are typically numerical handling of non-linear equations, linear and non-linear equation systems, integrals, approximation theory and differential equations. As most solution processes consist of a huge number of calculations, the usage of computers and special software packages are obvious and usual means of assistance in the subject area today.


Linnaeus University’s campus is located roughly 15 minutes with bicycle from the city centre. Campus is like a small society in its own right, with the university, student accommodation and student life all in one place. Everything happens on campus – here you become part of a creative knowledge environment and an eventful student life.

What will you find when exploring Växjö? There is a great selection of restaurants and cosy cafés. There is a large lake in the city centre, beautiful nature is always nearby. Many students enjoy the combination of the city centre in Växjö and life on campus. This is where your dream of the future begins!
