GENERAL INFORMATION
 This is NOT a course on learning MATLAB!
This is a mathematically oriented course on the mathematics of numerical methods
(that may be used by MATLAB). If you are looking for a course to learn MATLAB
then you should take for example the course
ME:4111/CEE:4511 Numerical Calculations.
You must master techniques used in Calculus to follow the course.
If you cannot easily integrate or differentiate a function then you should
really not register for the course. MATLAB programming is kept to a minimum.
It is not expected that you know MATLAB, a short introduction to using computers
and the use of MATLAB will be offered. A good place to start and to
learn MATLAB interactively at your own pace is the
MATLAB Academy.
I recommend that you learn the basics of MATLAB yourself before the class starts
given the fact that the class will go really fast in only 4 weeks.
Homeworks have some MATLAB programming, but all the examinations
are uniquely based on mathematics, there is no MATLAB question in the exams.

 Textbook (recommended):
Numerical Methods for Engineers and Scientists, 3rd Edition
by Amos Gilat and Vish Subramanian, 576 pages, Hardcover, Wiley, October 2013,
ISBN13: 9781118554937 (Hardcover, list price: $204.95, bookstore price $212.00 (new))
or
ISBN13: 9781118803011 (Wiley EText, list price: $64.00).
The Student Companion Site of that book.
The book on amazon.com.
The textbook is intended to be a complement giving a different view on the material.
It is more MATLAB oriented and less mathematically oriented.

LINUX COMPUTER ACCOUNTS
 CLAS Linux Support.

Linux computer accounts are available on the Linux network in MLH
(computer lab rooms B5 and 301). Set up a
CLAS Linux Account here
by just entering your hawkid and passphrase.

You can find
local online Linux Help
for questions/problems you may have about Linux.

Selected Unix commands.
 If you have problems with your Linux account go to 303A MLH.
 These accounts expire, see the
account expiration policy. If there is anything in this directory
that you would like to save, you must archive it to your own home directory.
REMOTE ACCESS TO MATLAB AND TO YOUR LINUX COMPUTER ACCOUNT
 If you connect from home first you may need to download and install the Cisco AnyConnect Virtual Private Network
and establish a VPN connection for each session:
follow the instructions here.
 To access your Linux computer account remotely.
you can use FastX, a graphical Linux virtual desktop environment
remotely accessible in your web browser:
 Login with your Hawkid username/password
 Click "Start a new session" (make sure your popup blocker doesn't block)
 Click "Bookmarks"
 Click "starxfce4 or startkde" depending on which desktop you want to
 Click "Start"
More details can be found
here.
You can make your browser window larger and then click in the lower left
hand corner, the box of nine dots that make a square, then click on the
arrow head with arrows on both ends to "maximize" the Linux desktop.
 https://virtualdesktop.uiowa.edu, a Windows virtual desktop
where you can access MATLAB in a Windows environment with your web browser (does not seem to work if your machine is a Linux machine).
