This laboratory will introduce the Interactive Data Language (IDL) and will give examples of some of the tricks that rounding errors play in floating point computations! |
In this assignment you will tinker with the Linear Systems routines of IDL and explore the conditioning and accuracy of interpolation and integration methods. |
We mentioned some IDL programs for ODEs in lectures. Click below to find |
In this assignment you will code up and solve an initial value (advection diffusion) and a boundary value (Laplace) equation. |
