Assignment: Typo

Question 1.2 (a). The right-hand side of the second equation is wrong. It should be c_1^2+10c_1 rather than c_1^2+10.

Catch-Up Lecture

The ‘Catch-Up’ Lecture will take place the Monday of Week 4, Monday 22 February at 09:00 in B214.

Week 3

If you download Maple (see Student Resources), there is a Maple Tutor that is easy to use and will help you with Gaussian Elimination. Open up Maple and go to Tools -> Tutors ->Linear Algebra -> Gaussian Elimination.

We did some examples of partial pivoting and then we looked at applications of Linear Systems: traffic flow and pipe networks.

Week 4

We will look at the heat distribution of a plate and perhaps start Chapter 2.

Assessment 1

Assessment 1 will have a hand-in date of Thursday March 3 (Week 5) and has been given out.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.
