Numerical Analysis

Numerical analysis or Scientific computing is the study of approximation techniques for numerically solving mathematical problems.

Scilab is based on methods of numerical computation:

  • Data analysis
  • Algorithm development
  • Model

Available methods include:

  • Interpolation and regression
  • Differentiation and integration
  • Linear systems of equations
  • Fourier analysis
  • Ordinary differential equations (ODEs)
  • Matrix computation (determination of eigenvalues and singular values)
