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.


Växjö is a modern city with more than 80,000 inhabitants. The city has been declared "the Greenest City in Europe" because of its focus on environmentally sound solutions and the environmental programs implemented.

Being a student in Växjö you have easy access to everything – the city centre, the woods and the lakes. The pedestrian path from campus around Lake Växjösjön reaches almost all the way to the city centre and is perfect for jogging or taking long walks.

Campus Växjö is modeled along the lines of an American campus university and is the natural meeting place for students in Växjö. Campus is always bustling with life, and students move between lecture rooms, the University Library and the restaurants, pubs and outdoor recreational areas.
