  • Topics covered include:
  • Prerequisites
    Multivariable calculus, linear algebra, programming experience. MATLAB will be used as the main language of the course. It is easy to learn if you have studied any other language. If you prefer, you may complete homework assignments in another language of your choice.

  • Requirements
    Attendance required. Weekly homework assignments, often programming intensive, and could be quite time consuming. It is important that you do the homework yourself, but when you get stuck, you are encouraged to consult with me and other students, to get help when necessary. However, when you get help, it's important to acknowledge it in writing. Passing off other's work as your own is not acceptable.

  • Required Text Book
    The course textbook is Numerical Methods: Design, Analysis, and Computer Implementation of Algorithms by Anne Greenbaum & Timothy P. Chartier. A reserve copy will be available on 2h reserve in the Courant Library.
