Scientific Computing I

The lecture will show the pratical implementation of standard numerical algorithmns. We focus on the special properties of the float-pointing arithmetics and difficulties on reformulating the algorithms in a highlevel programming language such as C. Utilities for searching errors and post proccessing of results will be explained too. Additionally, existing software packages that should be used in own implementations will be introduced.
