Notes and Resources... are linked from the schedule. Catalog description Solution of equations of one variable, direct methods in numerical linear algebra, least squares approximation, interpolation and uniform approximation, quadrature. Prerequisites
Computational Resources: You must have access to a somewhat modern version of Matlab, or some other computational environment that you are comfortable using. Class accounts for the labs will be available. You can also use SDSU's Rohan Sun Enterprise system or another capable system. [How to open a ROHAN account].
