AM372/272: Numerical Analysis for Engineers, AM361b Numerical Analysis for Scientists

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.
