# Courses

## CSCI-3656 (3) Numerical Computation

Covers development, computer implementation, and analysis of numerical methods for applied mathematical problems. Topics include floating point arithmetic, numerical solution of linear systems of equations, root finding, numerical interpolation,differentiation, and integration. Prereqs., two semesters of calculus, linear algebra, and either CSCI 1200 or 1300.

## CSCI-4446 (3) Chaotic Dynamics

Explores chaotic dynamics theoretically and through computer simulations. Covers the standard computational and analytical tools used in nonlinear dynamics and concludes with an overview of leading-edge chaos research. Topics include time and phase-space dynamics, surfaces of section, bifurcation diagrams, fractal dimension, and Lyapunov exponents. Prereqs., two semesters calculus, CSCI 1200, 1300 or equivalent, and PHYS 1110. Recommended prereqs., PHYS 1120, CSCI 3656, and MATH 3130. Same as CSCI 5446 and ECEN 4423.
