Numerical Analysis II
At the end of this course the student will have acquired knowledge and skills that will enable him (i) to use the conjugate gradient method to approximate the solution of a linear system of equations (ii) to approximate the eigenvalues of a matrice using the power method (iii)to approximate the first and higher order derivatives of a function (iv) to approximate the solution of initial value problems.
Furthermore, the student should be able to implement, using a computational language, the algorithms related with the covered numerical methods and analyze the numerical results obtained.

The theory is explained and illustrated with examples. Main results are proved. The students are given the opportunity of working some problems, with the instructor´s support if needed, and the instructor´s comments on relevant results highlighted in the problems.
1. The assessment will be done through two tests (T1, T2) and rwo homeworks (
TC1, TC2) .
2. Each test will be will be graded 0-20 values and the test T1 will be worth 30% of the final grade and the test T2 will be worth 40% of the final grade .
3. Each homework will be will be graded 0-20 values and will be worth 15% of the final grade.
4. To pass, students must obtain a final classification equal to, or higher than 10.
