Fall 2019 - MATH 709 G100
Numerical Linear Algebra and Optimization (3)
Class Number: 4116
Delivery Method: In Person
Held jointly with MACM 409-3. See description for MACM 409-3. Students may not take a 700 division course if it is being offered in conjunction with a 400 division course which they have taken previously.
A quick refresher of linear algebra, matrix factorizations, conditioning and stability, linear systems, the Fast Fourier Transform, methods for computing eigenvalues, and iterative methods. A running theme in the class will be applications of linear algebra.
Note: This is a cross-listed course with MACM 409. Students enrolled in the graduate level MATH 709 of this cross-listed course will be assigned additonal problems for each homework assignment. In addition, the scope of the term project will be more extensive for those enrolled in MATH 709.
- Homework (biweekly assignments, weighted equally) 40%

Graduate Studies Notes:
Important dates and deadlines for graduate students are found here: http://www.sfu.ca/dean-gradstudies/current/important_dates/guidelines.html. The deadline to drop a course with a 100% refund is the end of week 2. The deadline to drop with no notation on your transcript is the end of week 3.
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
