These courses were completely
reinvented, taking them from a cookbook `methods'
course and `pure analysis' course respectively to be focussed analysis
courses (flavoured for engineers and scientists separately) based on the
following two principles:
``A good numerical method gives you the exact solution to a nearby
problem'', and ``Some problems are sensitive to changes.'' This gave
the courses greatly improved integrity and usefulness for the
typical engineer and scientist. The principles of this course are valid
for *all* methods one uses for computer simulation;
the lessons taught are always needed.
