Class expectations: Students are expected to attend the lectures and read the notes in coordination with them. The lectures and notes will be terse at times, and students are expected to work out and fill in the details. Students should become familiar with Python including the NumPy package and be able to run it in their preferred computing environment. (For this, see the first five chapters of Langtangen's Primer or any of the many tutorials on the web.) There will be homework assignments both theoretical and computational, and a midterm and final exam.
