Required Text

Introduction to Scientific Computing: A Matrix-Vector Approach based on Matlab (Second Edition)
Author: Charles Van Loan
Publisher: Prentice Hall
ISBN: 0-13-949157-0
Note: The first edition will not work for the course.

 

Computing Environment

Matlab is available in the public labs in Upson, Dickson, and Carpenter.  You may purchase a student version of Matlab from the campus store.

 

Prerequisites

You are expected to have an understanding of mathematics equivalent to the freshman-sophomore calculus sequence (for example, Math 191, 192, 293, and 294.)  Of particular importance is linear algebra (Math 294 or 221).  You are expected to have some experience programming with Matlab (the experience you would receive from CS 100, for example).  We will provide a Matlab "refresher" at the beginning of the course, and teach important Matlab programming skills along with the course material.
