Instructor: Robert Bridson

Prerequisites: basic (3rd year) undergraduate scientific computing or willingness to pick up some basics on your own, advanced calculus and linear algebra.

This course is designed to fulfill the graduate breadth requirement in the topic of scientific computing. The goal is to prepare you either for using scientific computing in your own area (e.g. graphics, machine learning, vision, data mining, etc.) or to go on to more depth in particular topics in scientific computing.
