Introduction to numerical solutions of the classical problems of linear algebra including linear systems, least squares, and eigenvalue problems.
PrerequisitesUndergraduate linear algebra (including eigenvalues and eigenvectors) taken relatively recently. The assignments will require Matlab programming (at least at the level of CS 1371). An undergraduate level course in numerical methods (e.g., MATH 4640) is strongly recommended.
Students will develop facility with the methods of numerical linear algebra, e.g., various factorizations, iterative methods, and their analysis. This leads to the following larger learning objectives for students in this course. The students will be able to:
30% Midterms: Wed Feb 1, Fri Feb 24, Wed Mar 29
40% Final exam: Fri Apr 28 at 8 am. Students must pass the final exam to pass the course.
