The first (and primary) topic of the course is Numerical Linear Algebra. Although we presume that everyone already knows the basic theory, during the first few weeks will review the basics. As a guide, after a few weeks you should be able to do most of these AMCS 602 Linear Algebra Problems.
MATLAB is currently the best software for general scientific numerical computations. It is wise to learn how to use this effectively as soon as possible. Some references are listed below. You can buy a less expensive Student Version
