This schedule is not final but this is the anticipated curriculum of TMA4212.
JCS = John C. Strikwerda's book on finite differences
SM = Suli and Mayers, An introduction to Numerical Analysis
N = course note This note is still under construction (especially chapter 7). Please let me know of any mistakes you find.
