(3 units)Numerical solution of linear systems, including linear programming; iterative solutions of non-linear equations; computation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, matrix diagonalization. (CS 466 and MATH 466 are cross-listed; credit may be earned in one of the two.)
Student Learning Outcomes Upon completion of this course, students will be able to: 1. implement a numerical method to solve a nonlinear equation: e.g. bisection method, Newton’s method. 2. solve linear systems using direct and iterative methods. 3. construct interpolating functions.
