Short description of course: Line

This course introduces the basic numerical techniques of linear algebra. The emphasis of the course is on the design of these algorithms and their analysis, with some coverage of related applications to motivate and support the material. Because of this emphasis, it requires a good background in mathematics, and more specifically in linear algebra. For a detailed description see the syllabus
At the minimum the students in this class should be familiar with linear algebra and matrices at the level of csci 2033. A knowledge of matlab -- or alternatively Python+numpy -- is assumed for testing the algorithms.
Relations with csci 5302: The overlap between csci 5304 and csci5302 is minimal. The two courses are in fact complementary and taking them will give the student an excellent coverage of numerical methods.
