Prerequisites
Basic skills in numerical methods, as covered, for example, within LEPL1104 (Numerical methods).
Remark : LINMA2171 is the second part of a teaching programme in numerical analysis, of which LINMA1170 is the first part ; however, LINMA1170 is not a prerequisite for LINMA2171.

Learning outcomes
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :  
1 

Content
 Interpolation: polynomial, by spline functions, rational, trigonometric.
 Orthogonal polynomials: Legendre polynomials, Chebyshev polynomials.
 Approximation: uniform and in the leastsquare sense, by polynomials and by splines.
 Numerical integration: NewtonCotes formulas, Gauss method.
 Other topics related to the course themes.
Teaching methods
 Lectures
 Homeworks, exercises, or laboratory work under the supervision of the teaching assistants
Evaluation methods
 Work carried out during the term: homework assignments, exercises, or laboratory work. These activities are thus organized (and evaluated) only once per academic year.
 Exam: written, or sometimes oral depending on the circumstances.
Further information is provided in the "Course outline" document available on Moodle (see "Online resources" below).
