Unformatted text preview: Math 400 Numerical Analysis Spring 2011 Handout Review Final The final exam is on Friday, May 20, 10:45 am - 1:15 pm. It is a closed book, closed notes exam. You must bring your calculator. On the exam sheet, there will be enough space for your answers, but if you think you need extra scratch paper, bring it along. There are a total of seven measurable student learning outcomes (MSLOs) relevant for our course. But only four of them are relevant for Math 400 that I have taught. I have listed them below. I tried to also indicate where to find the material in your textbook for these MSLOs. You should expect a question (possibly with parts) corresponding to each MSLO. There will be one or two extra questions from selected topics as well. 1. Linear equations : The material we covered can be found in Chapter 6 and Chapter 7 of your textbook. You need to know the basic Gaussian elimination algorithm together with the operation count (6.1), the pivoting strategies – partial and scaled partial pivoting (6.2). You should be able to carry out one or two steps of any of these algorithms, discuss their advantages and disadvantages. You need to be able to relate Gaussian elimination to multiplication by elementary matrices (Gaussian transformation matrices in your textbook in the beginning part of 6.5) and how they are connectedtransformation matrices in your textbook in the beginning part of 6....
