15% Assignment 1

This should be started ASAP. This has a provisional hand in time and date of 11:00 Thursday 24 February. Please see Canvas.

Week 3

We finished Chapter 1 on Monday by looking at applications to temperature distribution, where the Jacobi Method is used to find approximate solutions to a diagonally dominant linear system.

If you want a deep dive into the temperature of a plate stuff there is a post here which explains — in great detail — how the ‘iterations’ are actually physically meaningful.

We had three classes of tutorials — Wednesday and the Thursday double. This means we have had more than five classes of tutorials in the first three weeks.

Week 4

We are now going to push to complete Chapter 2 over the next two weeks. Any remaining classes will be given over to tutorial time on Chapter 2/1.

I plan to talk about academic integrity for Assignment 1 on Monday, and hopefully do a Chapter 1 “concept MCQ” on Wednesday (technology depending).


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