Part IA lectures on Computational Projects (CATAM)

[Link back to Computer-Aided Teaching of All Mathematics (CATAM)]

Here we provide the materials used for the Easter-term 2016 lectures along with the slides shown and the code demonstrated. You should be able to click on the lecture title to access a PDF file. There will be 1 PDF file for each topic (e.g. all the notes for Gaussian elimination are given by the link for lecture 5, even though we continued the discussion into lecture 6).

All lectures were held in the Cockcroft Lecture Theatre. They will be held at 10:00. Please note that there was no lecture on Thurs 28th April 2016 (due to a travel commitment).
