This will not increase the cost of your purchase. Links provided are to the US Amazon site, but you can also support OCW through Amazon sites in other regions. Learn more.

This section presents problem sets with solutions and MATLAB® homework assignments. The problem sets are assigned from the text:

Amazon logo Strang, Gilbert. Computational Science and Engineering. Wellesley, MA: Wellesley-Cambridge Press, 2007. ISBN: 9780961408817. (Table of Contents)

Working together is allowed on problem sets. However, you must write up your results individually and indicate the names of your collaborators. Use of existing solutions is not allowed.
