Text
The following texts are recommended, not required. My impression is that the text by Olver/Shakiban
is most suitable for engineers, but probably any text on matrices will have advanced chapters covering the
material equally well. At any rate, try using your old textbook and the class lectures/notes before you buy a
new book. A few chapters from my book on Differential Equations and Linear Algebra are available in
Blackboard's "Course Documents;" they are very lowlevel.
Applied Linear Algebra, P.J.Olver, C. Shakiban, PrenticeHall
Inc., 2006 (?). ISBN # 0131473824.
Introduction to Numerical Linear Algebra and Optimisation, P. G.
Ciarlet, Cambridge University Press, 1989. ISBN # 0 521 32788 1.
Fundamentals of Matrix Computations, 2nd edition. Watkins, D. S.
WileyInterscience, 2002. ISBN#:0471213942.
Access to MATLAB software is required. It exists on the USF engineering computing network. Tutorials
are available on the internet at many sites.
Catalog Description
: Advanced matrix algorithms: LU and QR factorizations, leastsquares, pseudoinverses.
Optimization methods.
Course Prerequisites
: MAP 2302 Differential Equations (solution methods for first order nonlinear and
higher order linear equations), basic matrix algebra.

Welcome to my classes, USF students!
You're taking a "webonly" class from me. That means you won't see me live; you'll watch lectures I taped in the past,
