## Welcome to the (Advanced Numerical Analysis) Course

In this course, you will be Introduced to several numerical approximation methods such as interpolation: divided difference, polynomial approximations, iterative methods for solving linear systems, numerical differentiation and numerical integration.

During five weeks of the course, you will be learning these methods and compare them as well.

The course is divided into five weeks where each week you will find a set of video lectures posted with a PDF version of lecture notes as well.

You are welcome to take this course if you want to learn and study the advanced numerical analysis methods.
