Studiehandbokstexten på svenska
och engelska.

- Scientific Computation Computational Algebra (SCCA) is given in September-October. It is included in the International Masters program in Scientific Computation, but is open for anybody with a basic course in Numerical Analysis. It gives 2 points.
- Methods for Large Matrices, is given in October-December. Qualified students, e. g. those who have taken Applied Numerical Methods 2, 2D1250 may enter directly here. This is course 2D1253. It gives 4 points.

Please sign up at your earliest convenience!If you do not have a Swedish personnummer, use a temporary number from KTH or after your own choice. It should have digits and the letter A. First six digits are yymmdd of your birthday, last four Ad1d2d3. The second last digit d2 should be odd for men and even for women. We hoped that no people with the same birtday choose the same lucky number.

Lab sessions, L1-L6, are held Thursdays 08:15-10 in varying rooms named after colours in Swedish.

It has been difficult to get the book in Stockholm. There is a way to buy it directly from the publisher who offers a discount for members. SIAM offers a free student membership to students of SIAM member schools of which one is Royal Institute of Technology, KTH. Sign in at http://www.siam.org/students/membership.htm

You may follow the first part of the course, 2 points, without the book, but if you intend to follow the second, 4 points, you are recommended to get the book.

Written reports on programming assignments handed in by groups of no more than two students. Discussion of homework between labgroups allowed and encouraged.
