# Numerical Analysis/Intro

This topic page is for organising the development of **Numerical analysis** content on Wikiversity.

If you are knowledgeable in any area Numerical analysis, feel free to improve, we would greatly appreciate your contributions.

**Numerical analysis** is the study of algorithms that use numerical approximation (as opposed to general symbolic manipulations) for the problems of continuous mathematics (as distinguished from discrete mathematics).

As a topic of study, it has a large overlap with Numerical Algorithms and Scientific Computing.
