MATH 56 Computational and Experimental Mathematics

Computations have always played a key role in mathematical progress both pure and applied: generating conjectures (e.g. distribution of prime numbers), and numerically solving models of the real world (e.g. climate change).  An exponential growth in computing power has made this game-changing.  This course surveys computational methods, algorithms, and  software environments that are an essential part of the modern mathematicians toolkit.  Possible topics include: the fast Fourier transform, visualization, computer assisted proofs, numerical integration, high-precision computing, computation combinatorics and number theory. Offered in alternate years.


MATH 22 or MATH 24, COSC 1 or ENGS 20, or permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
