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.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
