Recommended Course: MAA106
MAA208 covers the very important topic
of numerical linear algebra. Starting with
recalling linear algebra’s basic concepts
(i.e. vectors, matrices, addition and
multiplication), we quickly concentrate
on methods for solving linear systems.
Students study typical direct and iterative
methods together with their practical
implementation. This permits them to
compare the methods in terms of complexity
depending on the size of the problem
to solve. The emphasis is put on the
practical resolution of the problems and
the theory that is required to understand
the behavior of the methods considered.
Subtle notions such as condition number,
order of convergence, etc. are covered
and explained. The course finishes with a
project which is defended in-class during
the last week of the semester. Students are
evaluated based on this their project presentation,
a report, and coursework.
