Numerical Computing: Hybrid Computing Quick Start

Unlike many systems, Mathematica can take advantage of symbolic computation and exact numbers when solving numerical problems. This ability allows users to find the right answer in many cases where purely approximate methods would fail and opens up a world of powerful hybrid symbolic-numeric methods. In this course you'll get a look under the hood at some of the ways Mathematica's numerics benefit from its symbolics.

Level: Intermediate

The course is for those who have a basic familiarity with Mathematica's numeric and symbolic computation.
