The study of some modern procedures of approximation and interpolation, numerical integration, and of solving some differential equations.
1. Introductive notions.
2. Polynomial spline interpolation operators.
3. Interpolation operators on a rectangular domain. Examples of interpolation operators on a square and a cube.
4. Interpolation operators on a simplex domain. Examples of interpolation operators on a triangle and a tetrahedron. Newton@s Algorithm.
5. Interpolation operators on a triangle and a tetrahedron with curved sides.
6. Interpolation operators on an arbitrary domain. Extension of some calssical interpolation procedures. Univariate and bivariate Shepard interpolation. Interpolation by radial basis functions.
7. Numerical integration of functions. Classical quadrature formulas. Richardson@s formula. Adaptive quadrature formulas.
8. Optimal quadrature formulas in sense of Sard and Nikolski. Homogenous cubature formulas.
9. Numerical methods for solving some differential equations.
