 Learning objectives: 

  To provide overview and basics of practical use of selected methods for
numerical solutions of differential equations (based on the Taylor
Series Method) for extremely exact and fast solutions of sophisticated
problems.  Description: 

  The course is aimed at practical methods of solving problems
encountered in science and engineering: large systems of differential
equations, algebraic equations, partial differential equations,stiff
systems, problems in automatic control, electric circuits, mechanical
systems, electrostatic and electromagnetic fields. An original method
based on a direct use of Taylor series is used to solve the problems
numerically. The course also includes analysis of parallel algorithms
and design of special architectures for the numerical solution of
differential equations. A special simulation language TKSL is available.
 Knowledge and skills required for the course:
