The course comprises topics from general algebra with focus on finite structures used in computer science. It includes topics from multi-variate analysis, smooth optimization and multi-variate integration. The third large topic is computer arithmetics and number representation in a computer along with error manipulation. The last topic includes selected numerical algorithm and their stability analysis. The topics are completed with demonstration of applications in computer science. The course focuses on clear presentation and argumentation.
