MATH 677 : Symbolic Computation

Credits: 3

Course Description: The course will cover computational arithmetic and algorithms in a number of contexts: floating point, multiple precision, large integer, rational, polynomial and power series, with an emphasis on exact symbolic calculations. Additional topics, including sparse matrix and polynomial operations will be included. The course will be evaluated via programming course projects in a high level language such as C++. The class will not only give theoretical understanding, but will also provide "hands-on" experience in writing mathematical software. By the end of the course, students will be expected to have all necessary practical skills to write and test a mathematical library in a high level language.

Pre-Requisites: Permission of Instructor.
