CSCI048 CM - Numerical Linear Algebra

Numerical linear algebra covers techniques of linear algebra over the real numbers including vector scaling, addition, matrix scaling, addition, multiplication, inversion, factoring, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and singular value decompositions. Both direct methods such as Gaussian Elimination and iterative methods such as Gauss-Seidel will be introduced, with an emphasis on the computational complexity and numerical errors incurred by these operations. The course or MATH 060 CM  will serve as a linear algebra prerequisite for CMC CS courses. Those planning to take higher level mathematics courses should take MATH 060 CM . Credit will not be given for both MATH 060 CM  and CSCI 048.

Prerequisites: CSCI 040 CM  , CSCI 005 HM  , or CSCI051 (any language).

Offered: Every year

Credit: 1

Course Number: CSCI048 CM
