Textbook: Numerical Analysis, by Richard L. Burden and J. Douglas
Faires, 8th edition.
Course description: This is the second part of a three-quarters intro-
ductory course on Numerical Analysis. The focus this quarter will be the
numerical solution of linear systems of equations and eigenvalue problems.
We will also study families of orthogonal polynomials and their approxima-
tion properties. Although the emphasis will be in applications, the course
will have a strong theoretical component.
Prerequisites: Math 5 A, B, and C or equivalent. Knowledge of a computer
language suitable for numerical computing: FORTRAN, C, C++, or Matlab.
Assignments and grading: Homework will be assigned on Thursday, and
will be collected at the beginning of the class on the following Thursday.
