Course Coverage

     The course studies numerical algorithms and related theory for solving a variety of mathematical problems. The following topics will be covered:

Grading

    The course grade will be based on homeworks (55%), a midterm exam (15%) and a final exam (30%).

Computing

     Some assigned homework problems will require programming. MATLAB (or Octave) is recommended.
For those who have not used MATLAB before, this free book by Moler (Introduction to MATLAB) provides a good introduction.   MATLAB  also has an extensive on-line help facility  (just type "help"  or  "help commandname"  in MATLAB).
