MATH 066. Stochastic and Numerical Methods


In mathematical problems that arise from real-world applications, exact solutions often cannot be obtained due to complicating characteristics, such as nonlinearity, uncertainty, and randomness. This course will introduce theory and techniques to numerically approximate solutions to these types of mathematical problems.  This course will also survey the mathematical theory of stochastic processes.  Additional topics may be included, depending on the instructor.
Prerequisite: A grade of C or better in MATH 027  or MATH 028 MATH 034  or MATH 035 ; and in MATH 043  or MATH 044 ; or permission of the instructor.
