## Numerical Computation

Surveys and applications of numerical techniques related to matrix inversion, systems of linear equations and optimization, finite difference expressions, interpolation and approximation, numerical differentiation and integration. The problems of speed, accuracy and applicability of the topics are examined with related algorithms. The applications of these numerical methods and subjects on computers using efficient programming techniques and with necessary programming languages.
