About the course
This is an introductory course to the algorithms and methods used in scientific
computing, for students of Mathematics, Sciences, Engineering, Computer
Science. You should be familiar with calculus, and linear algebra,
and one programming language (for example, matlab, maple, fortran, etc.)
The exposition is mathematical and it will include the statement and proofs
of theorems. Algorithms will be discussed in pseudocode, so they
are easy to write in any computer language.
