Approximation Theory (M832)
Approximation theory is concerned with approximating functions of a given class using functions from another, usually more elementary, class. A simple example is the problem of approximating a function such as e x by means of polynomial functions. The efficient solution of such problems is of great importance for computing, and this module will introduce the mathematical theory behind many approximation methods in common use. This intermediate-level module is based on the set book Approximation Theory and Methods by M. J. D. Powell.
