  • This is the course web page for CPSC 303 in winter term 2 (spring) of 2011-2012.
    • The official title of the course is CPSC 303: Numerical Approximation and Discretization.
    • The course covers a number of introductory topics in numerical analysis and scientific computing: interpolation, best fit, numerical integration and differentiation, and initial value problems for ordinary differential equations.
    • The course does not cover solution of linear and nonlinear systems of equations.  That material is covered in the sister course CPSC 302.
    • Although they cover similar topics, CPSC 303 focuses more on algorithmic and computational aspects than MATH 405.
    • For more details on course topics, see the Course Overview.
  • This course is offered by the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia.
