The MATLAB assignments below are due in class
on the days indicated. The chapter references and problem sets
are from "Differential Equations with MATLAB" by B. Hunt et al.
Problem Set A: Tuesday June 7
hand in problems 1-6
(but work through all problems)
(before A, go through Chapters 1-4)
Problem Set B: Tuesday June 14
Problems 6, 11a, 12bc
(before B, go through Chapters 5-6)
Note, problem 6 is similar to problem 5, for
which there is a solution (p.260).
Problem Set C:Tuesday June 21
Problems 4 and 10
Note, problem 4 is similar to problem 3, for
which there is a solution (p.264).
Problem Set D: Tuesday June 28
(Parts of Ch. 10 are relevant.)
Problem Set F: Tuesday July 5
You may work alone or in two-person teams on your MATLAB assignments.
If you work with another person on an assignment, turn in just
one set of solutions; both of you will get the same grade. In this
case, you must work together--if one of you does the work and the
other signs it, then you are both cheating.
Math department lab.
For Math summer session students, the computer lab
in Room 0203 (Math building) is open Monday through
12:30-2:30. The computers have MATLAB.
There is a T.A. on duty who can help you get set up
and with MATLAB. DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE DAY BEFORE AN ASSIGNMENT IS DUE.
Summer WAM Hours.
The two-hour window above might not be enough.
For summer hours of wam labs (not including
the 12:30-2:30 window in 0203 Math), see
In particular, PG2 (Regents Parking Garage) should be
open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You need a
University id to enter between 11:30 pm and 6:30 am.
If you are interested in purchasing Matlab
for your own computer rather than only using
the wam labs, then you should be able to
get the Student Version
for a price on the order of $100 at the bookstore or
the MATLAB website,
Check it is compatible with your operating
system -- windows 98 is not good enough --
XP and Linux are fine.
