Covers numerical methods and use of computer algorithms for discrete least squares approximation, trigonometric polynomial approximation, Fast Fourier Transforms, and Boundary value problems. Solutions of second order partial differential equations, namely, elliptic (Laplace's and Poisson's), parabolic and hyperbolic equations, using finite difference methods will be covered. Computer programs and software packages (MATLAB) will be used to solve equations.

Labs to be scheduled outside of class hours on a schedule to be determined on the first day of class. Registrants who are not BTech Electronics students must have approval from the program head. Please contact Katie Howard at 604-432-8237 or email@example.com for more information, or to be placed on a wait-list if the course is full. No class on February 18th (Family Day Weekend). Note: BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses. In the event of a course cancellation, you will be notified at least two business days prior to the course start. Please ensure that your contact information is current in your myBCIT account.
Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:
- Carry out "Discrete least squares approximation."
- Carry out "Trigonometric polynomial approximation."
- Derive "Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)" algorithm.
- Write, test and demonstrate use of an FFT algorithm using MATLAB.
- Use numerical methods and a computer to solve Laplace's equation using repetitive finite difference methods.
- Solve boundary value problems using the shooting method, and the finite difference method, for second order inhomogeneous differential equations.
- Use finite difference methods and MATLAB to solve one or more of; parabolic, hyperbolic and elliptic partial differential equations.
