Open office hours are:
Or drop in if the door is wide open and I don’t look like I’m going crazy!
Matrix Computations (4e) by Golub and Van Loan is the required text.
Graded work will be weighted as follows:
Homework will be assigned in lecture roughly every other week, and will be due before the next assignment. The assignments will involve both MATLAB programming and more theoretical exercises.
You may talk to each other about the homework, but:
In the event of a major campus emergency like an H1N1 flu outbreak, course requirements, deadlines, and grading percentages are subject to changes that may be necessitated by a revised semester calendar or other circumstances. Any such announcements will be posted to the course home page.
