**Learning outcomes: **

The course covers the basic techniques for iterative methods for solving linear system of equations, the solution of problems modeled by Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) e BVP (Boundary Value problems). Next, the course presents numerical methods for the solution of problems modeled by Partial Differential Equations (PDE).
Part A:
A first course in Numerical Analysis. Covers the basic techniques for iterative methods for solving linear system of equations, the solution of problems modeled by Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) e BVP (Boundary Value problems). The course discusses their analysis, applications, and computation of the solution by numerical methods.
Part B:
This second part of the course presents numerical methods for the solution of problems modeled by Partial Differential Equations (PDE). The course discusses their analysis, applications, and computation of the solution (by first discretizing the equation, bringing it into a finite-dimensional subspace by a finite element method, or a finite difference method , and finally reducing the problem to the solution of an algebraic equations)
