- CS 314 or equivalent, and a good knowledge of MATLAB.
- Homework is an essential part of advanced mathematics courses. Most students will find that some problems will require repeated and persistent effort to solve. This process is an integral component of developing a mastery of the material presented, and students who do not dedicate the necessary time and effort towards this will compromise their performance in the exams in this course, and their ability to apply this material in their subsequent work.
- A student may after working conscientiously on a problem for over 30 minutes, consult with other current Math/CS 514 students to develop and clarify their approach to the problem. The written solution should however be an independent and individual effort that reflects the student's understanding of the problem and its solution.
- As a general guide, a student should be able to independently reproduce any solution that is submitted as homework. Copying of solutions is not permitted and will be considered a violation of these guidelines.
- I do not offer immediate round the clock technical support, please
plan ahead accordingly.
- I will try to respond to emails within 36 hours during the week, and
within 72 hours during the weekend.
- Emailed questions should primarily be limited to clarification of the
homework questions, and I will defer questions that require more
substantial responses, in particular programming questions, to my
