The basic linear algebra of matrices used for solutions of large scale systems of linear equations is treated. Applications of matrices such as Leontieff models of multisector economics and the basics of the simplex method for solving linear economic optimization problems are discussed. Fundamental concepts of probability including basic combinatorial methods for probabilistic computations are studied. An introduction is given to decision theory. This treatment is in the context of Bayesian or statistical decision theory though game theoretic versions may be discussed. Possible optional topics may include elementary Markov chains or the matrix algebra of spreadheet operations. THIS CLASS IS FOR IFSM MAJORS ONLY. Prerequisite: MATH 141, 151, 155 or 380.

[4064] 0101 MWF.......10:00am10:50am (MP 401) HOFFMAN, K MATH 490A Special Topics in Mathematics Introduction 3 credits to Game Theory Grade Method: REG/PF/AUD This course will give an introduction to game theory, the topic for which John Nash (A Beautiful Mind), John Harsanyi, and Reinhard Selten received the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1994. Game theory has been developed to model situations of conflict and cooperation among rational participants. Noncooperative game theory deals with situation of conflict and cooperative game theory deals with situation of cooperation. In this course, we will consider both noncooperative as well as cooperative game theory. In noncooperative game theory, we will study how to model a situation as a cooperative game, and solution concepts such as stable sets, the core, the Shapleyvalue, and the Nash bargaining set. Prerequisite: MATH 301, 381 or permission of instructor. [4065] 0101 TuTh.......2:30pm 3:45pm (MP 010) ARMSTRONG, T MATH 490B Special Topics in Mathematics Numerical 3 credits Solutions to Partial Differential Equations Grade Method: REG/PF/AUD Many important physical processes are modeled by partial differential equations which cannot be solved by hand. Solutions to these equations must be approximated using numerical techniques. In this course, we will focus on algorithm development and analysis of some of the most popular computational techniques for solving the heat, wave, and potential equations. Finite different and finite element methods will be emphasized with finite volume and spectral methods included if time permits. The course will cover both theory (convergence analysis of the methods) and practical implementation details. All computer assignments will be written in MATLAB. This course is appropriate for senior level undergraduates and beginning graduate students in mathematics, engineering and scientific disciplines where the solution of differential equations is integral to modeling real world phenomena. Prerequisite: MATH 251, 341, 404 and knowledge of programming in general and MATLAB in particular. Some of these requirements may be waived with permission from the instructor.
