MathematicsMATH 143 Computational Mathematics

Solving mathematical problems in a Unix environment using the C++ programming language. In addition, software packages such as LAPACK, MACSYMA, MATLAB, and Numerical Recipes are used. Computational problems in both pure and applied mathematics are discussed. Use of other machines on the Internet, such as the Cray supercomputer in San Diego is explained. Students are expected to know how to program in some language, not necessarily C++. Concurrent enrollment in course 143L is required.
