Homework Help: Numerical Methods Course

  1. Jun 27, 2006 #1
    Can anyone point me to a website or set of notes that I could read up on the topics of this course?

    course includes: solving for the roots of algebraic and transcendental
    equations, solution of simultaneous linear equations,
    least-squares curve fits to data, interpolation, numerical integration,
    numerical differentiation, and numerical solution of linear
    and nonlinear ordinary differential equations for both initial and
    boundary value problems.

    Both are very good resources if you're willing to put in the effort.
