All current and recent information will be
placed here. Regarding examination at 23.10.2012: CTH students should
not register for this exam. Only GU students can register for the
examination. CTH and GU students will get their personal exam numbers from
Observers of this exam. Examination at 23.10 will be at Maskinhuset at
Chalmers:
Maskinhuset Where exactly (in which one
room) will be exam You will know at the day of examination: the
announcement will be placed at the blackboard close to the entree of
Maskinhuset. Notes: GU students can do reexamination but they can not
high their scores (for example, from G to VG) but Chalmers students
can do reexamination and high scores. At the latest lecture we have
decided make reexamination at 17.01.2013 at 8.30. Please, follow this
site to get exact information closer to the day of reexamination.
Aboit reexamination at 17.01.2013: this date for reexamination is
already in Chalmers studieportal. This means that Chalmers students
can already register for this reexamination.
Wednesdays 1315 (except the first week) in computer room MVF24 (Mathematical Sciences in Physics building).
Fridays 1315 in computer room MVF24 (exept the first week).
Computer labs and Matlab/PETSc excercises will be included in the
assignments below.
Matlab programs which will be used in computer exercises:
polyplot.m
eigscat.m
qrplt.m
Reference literature:

(The book is published by SIAM)
The following sections in the textbook will be considered in the
book. Chapters 6 and 7 are saved for the another course.
 Chapter 1

mainly repetition and brief revision on basic linear algebra.
 Chapter 2

The following questions in the textbook are recommended:
 Chapter 1: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 13.
 Chapter 2: 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 17, 19.
 Chapter 3: 1, 2, 3(parts 1,2,3), 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 14, 15, 18.
 Chapter 4: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13.
 Chapter 5: 1, 3 (for symmetric matrix), 6, 7, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 22, 27, 28.
To each chapter belong an optional homework assignment and a
computer exercise. The homework assignments are similar to the
questions in the textbook and such you could expect at the
examination. In the computer exercises you will be trained in using
different algorithms in numerical linear algebra using MATLAB or
PETSc libraries. Either you will use already existing MATLAB and
PETSC programs or write your own small MATLAB or PETSc codes. The
homework assignments give bonus credit points for the examination.
Since the occasions reserved for the computer exercises are without
supervision you may put questions on these exercises to me at the
lectures. Passed computer exercises will be graded with grades 3,
4, or 5, see examination below.
You may work in a group of 2 persons but hand in only one report for the group.
Wednesdays 1315 (except the first week) in computer room MVF24 (Mathematical Sciences at Physics building)
Fridays 1315 in computer room MVF24 (exept the first week when it is in room MVF25).
Hand in a short report of your work
before the final exam.
 To pass this course you should pass the written exam and one of the 5 computer assignments. To get max 5 points for computer exercises I will use middle value for all 5 submitted computer labs. If middle value > 4.5  then you will get 5 bonus points.
 The two compulsory home assignments should be handed in before the final exam generating max 5 bonus points.
 Written examination

 Final exam is compulsory, written,
with a maximum score of 27 points.
 The theory questions will be choosen from the following list
 List of questions
 You should be able to state and explain all definitions and theorems given in the course
and also apply them in problem solving.
 Grades are set according to the table below.

Bring ID and receipt for your student union fee (this is requirement only for Chalmers students. GU students can come on the exam without receipt).
Solutions to the exam will be published at the following link (will be added).
You will be notified the result of your exam by email from LADOK
(This is done automatically as soon as the exams have been marked an
the results are registered.)
The exams will then be kept at the
students office in the Mathematical Sciences building.
Check
that the number of points and your grade given on the exam and
registered in LADOK coincide.
Complaints of the marking should be
written and handed in at the office. There is a form you can use, ask
the person in the office.).
The following link will tell you all about the examination room rules
at Chalmers: Examination room instructions
In
Chalmers Student Portal you can read about when exams are
given and what rules apply on exams at Chalmers.
At the exam, you should be able to show valid identification.
Before the exam, it is important that you report that you want to take the examination.
You do this at
Chalmers Student Portal.
Notice of result is obtained only by email via Ladok. (Not verbally at study expedition.)
This is done automatically when the results are registered.
Check that you have the right grades and score.
At the annual examination:
When it is practical a separate review is arranged.
The date of the review will be announced here on the course website.
Anyone who can not participate in the review may thereafter retrieve and
review their exam on Mathematical sciences study expedition, Monday through Friday,
from 9:00 to 13:00.
Any complaints about the marking must be submitted in writing
at the office, where there is a form to fill out.
At reexamination:
Exams are reviewed and picked up at the Mathematical sciences study expedition,
Monday through Friday, from 9:00 to 13:00. Any complaints about the marking must
be submitted in writing at the office, where there is a form to fill out.
