Audiovisual Lectures on Numerical Methods

We have started to put audiovisual lectures on the web for an undergraduate course in numerical methods. These videos are available at the youtube site http://www.youtube.com/numericalmethodsguy.

Some of the videos are longer than 10 minutes, so they could not be loaded to the youtube site. Right now, these videos and the links to the youtube videos are available at http://numericalmethods.eng.usf.edu/videos/index.html. We are editing the longer than 10-minute videos so that they can be uploaded to youtube.

The above webpage is a better webpage to find the videos of your choice as the videos are given in a sequential fashion for a particular topic.

By end of Spring 2009, we should have uploaded all the audiovisual lectures for a typical numerical methods course.

Drop me a comment on what you think about this new avenue to learn numerical methods.

Proper modeling needs to precede numerical solutions

Given below is a problem where it is shown that proper modeling is key to solving engineering problems.  An improper model and a proper model may lead to opposite conclusions

Numerical Methods Book Printed

The blog is restarting after a month of hiatus due to winter break at my institution. As part of the dissemination plan of our NSF funded grant, we have printed a numerical methods book. This book consists of most of the numerical methods taught in a typical numerical methods course.

The book is being used in Spring 2009 in the numerical methods course at the University of South Florida and at the Arizona State University.

You can buy the textbook: Numerical Methods with Applications at the lulu storefront.

A dedicated website for the book has also been developed.
