Personal website

This is the tentative website for MTH 537 Introduction to Numerical Analysis I, Fall 2019.

Once I gain edit access to UBlearns, I will migreate this website there.

Syllabus

Official textbook

Where: Room 122, Math Building

Schedule: MWF, 1:00-1:50PM

Office hours: MW, 2:00-3:00PM, Math Building 318


Schedule change

No lecture on November 4 (Monday). The supplementary lecture is on November 8 (Friday), 3:00-3:50pm in Room 122 and 4:00-4:50pm in Room 150. I will give exactly the same lecture twice. So it is enough to attend just one. Note that the regular lecture 1:00-1:50pm on this day occurs as usual.

No lecture on November 13 (Wednesday). The supplementary lecture is on November 15 (Friday), 3:00-3:50pm in Room 122 and 4:00-4:50pm in Room 150. Again, I will give exactly the same lecture twice. Note that the regular lecture 1:00-1:50pm on this day occurs as usual.

Thanks for accommodating these changes.


Homework

Submit electronically by email (see instructions in the problem sheets). Scanning handwritten ones and send it to me by email is (also) fine. But write tidily so that I can read please.

Week 2.

Week 4 (under construction).

Week 5 (under construction).

Codes

The textbook has MATLAB codes, which can be downloaded on the textbook's supplementary website.
Note: This website has erratas as well, but the pdf does not show (at least in my computer).

The department teaching is based on Python rather than MATLAB (and Python is free!), so John Ringland is kindly translating MATLAB codes in the book into Python, available here. Note that not all the codes will be translated. Only those which I will use in the classes, relevant to homework, etc. are translated.

I also write some Python codes to be demonstrated in classes, which are available below. In doing computational homework, you are allowed to use part or whole of these codes (including the ones translated by John) in your submission.
