AMATH 352: Applied Linear Algebra and Numerical Analysis Winter Quarter 2010 Time: MW 12:30-1:20, SIG 134 Time: F 12:30-1:20, GWM 301 Instructor Prof. Ulrich Hetmaniuk Guggenheim 415D tel: (206) 685 9298 hetmaniu@u.washington.edu M, W 13:30-14:30, or by appointment Course webpage: https://catalysttools.washington.edu/workspace/hetmaniu/9480 Course description: The course goals are to understand the basic concepts of linear al- gebra and to obtain an introduction to some aspects of computational techniques used in matrix methods. We will study basic concepts in linear algebra, including vectors, vector spaces, linear transformations, matrix-vector manipulations, solving linear systems, least squares problems, and eigenvalue problems. Matrix decompositions (e.g. LU, QR, SVD, etc.) will play a fundamental role throughout the course. The emphasis will be on practical aspects of linear algebra and numerical methods for solving these problems. Such problems arise constantly in science, engineering, finance, computer graphics. Some familiarity with computer programming is assumed in this course, at the level of CSE 142 or AMATH 301. You are not expected to know
