The exercise classes take place at Nullrommet. How to get to Nullrommet.

At any exercise/project class you can ask about anything regarding the project parts or the exercises published up to the current time, or indeed about anything concerning the course. We will, however, prioritize project-related questions over other questions.


The recommended programming language is MATLAB. Please see the Introduction to MATLAB page for instructions on how to install and use it.

If you want to use another programming language, you are free to do so, but we will not be able to provide help for programming difficulties in other languages. If you want to use another language, please make sure that you have installed a decent numerical linear algebra library and a library for creating plots.

Problem Sets

Here are the exercises you are encouraged to solve. They will develop your skills to pass the final exam and your programming abilities (essential for the project work). Solutions are given, but, for obvious reasons, we strongly recommend to try and solve the problems without using the solution.

In addition to these exercises, all the problems from the text book are very useful for developing your understanding of numerical mathematics, and your ability to solve exam problems.

None of the suggested exercises (either these or those in the textbook) are compulsory. Only the projects count for the final mark.
