Analysis of Numerical Topics

[Return to start of tour] [Up to Mathematical Analysis]

Here we consider fields of mathematics which address the issues of how to carry out --- numerically or even in principle --- those computations and algorithms which are treated formally or abstractly in other branches of analysis. These fields have shown enormous growth in recent decades in response to demands for effective, robust solutions to demanding problems from science, engineering, and other quantitative applications.

For the more abstract theory of algorithms or information flow, jump to the Computer Sciences part of the tour.

If you've been clicking on topics "in order", you've now visited all the general areas of analysis. If you missed any, or if you'd like to continue the tour of other areas besides analysis, you can do so by returning now to the analysis page. Otherwise, you may wish to proceed to the next portion of the tour: Probability and Statistics
