Approximations for Piecewise Smooth Functions

APMA 1930S S01 [CRN: 16056]

We will discuss approximation methods for piecewise smooth functions with isolated discontinuities. Such piecewise smooth functions appear often in applications, most notably in computational fluid dynamics of high speed flows. The basic background required is APMA 0330-0340, and some knowledge of programming (e.g. MATLAB or FORTRAN or C). APMA 1170 and/or APMA 1180 are helpful but not required. Students will be asked to participate actively in the class, and perform individual or group projects which may be designed to fit the interest of each student or group.
