Numerical Analysis: Master ́s Thesis

Official Course Description


The aim of the degree project is that the student through an independent project should show knowledge understanding, competence, skills, ability, judgement and approach in accordance with the requirements for obtaining a Degree of Master of Science in mathematics with specialisation in numerical analysis. The degree project shall be specialised and show that the student can apply numerical methodology.

The content and execution of the degree project are planned in consultation with a supervisor. The degree project consists of an independent smaller research or development assignment that can either relate to current projects at the department or to problems within the subject area at companies or other institutions within or outside the university. If the work is carried out outside the department, there should also be a supervisor at the department.
