Background knowledge

Students are expected to have attended introductory courses on calculus, linear algebra, and numerical analysis during their B.Sc. degree. The suggested reading below provides the list of topics students have to be familiar with.

The following preliminary test allows evaluating the level of knowledge on the subject: test.pdf

A set of additional exercise sessions on these topics will be delivered by Stefano Massei during the first semester. All students are encouraged to attend.
