          refresher   software)   for  all  sections
          taught by the instructor. The course grade
          is  based  on  three  50-minute  in  class
          examinations  and a final examination. The
          Hybrid   sections   are   recommended  for
          students  who  need to  review portions of
          Algebra   II  and  are  comfortable  using
          computer technology.

MATH 490  Special Topics in Mathematics Dynamical                 3 credits
          Systems and Differential Equations                

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD This course will
          focus   on   the  qualitative  aspects  of
          dynamical  systems  modeled by  systems of
          ordinary   differential  equations.   Most
          differential    equations    arising    in
          applications  cannot  be solved  in closed
          form.  However fundamental  questions such
          as  existence and uniqueness of solutions,
          continuous   dependence  of  solutions  on
          initial  conditions as well  as notions of
          local   and   global   stability   can  be
          investigated   for   a   large   class  of
          dynamical  systems.  This  course  aims to
          develop  an  understanding  of  the theory
          behind  the  rich qualitative  behavior of
          dynamical  systems. Topics covered include
          existence  and uniqueness, linear systems,
          characterization    of    behavior    near
          equilibria,  forms  of  local  and  global
          stability,       Lyapunov       functions,
          Poincare-Bendixson  theorem,  bifurcations
          and  chaos. Prerequisites:  MATH 221, MATH
          225, MATH 301.

MATH 617  Introduction to Industrial Mathematics                  3 credits

          Grade   Method:   REG   The   variety   of
          mathematical   methods  used  in  industry
          covers  the whole spectrum of mathematics,
          so  this course, of  necessity, will focus
          on   problems   leading  to  ordinary  and
          partial  differential equation models. The
          course  will take a case-based approach in
          discussing  key ideas  and problem solving
          methodologies.  Dimensional  analysis  and
          scaling,      conservation     principles,
          constitutive   relations,   and   modeling
          philosophies  will  be  discussed.  Course
          grade will mainly be derived from a number
          of  short reports  submitted from assigned
          projects.   Application   topics   to   be
          discussed   remain   open,   but   typical
          examples include electrochemical painting,
          air  quality modeling, lubrication theory,
          fiber  spinning, photocopy  dynamics, etc.
          The course is part of a departmental track
          in  industrial mathematics, but is open to
          other  students. Prerequisites:  Math 225,
          404,  some  familiarity with  a high-level
          programming  language,  or  permission  of
          instructor.

          Efficient Algorithms for Large Scale              
          Optimization Problems                             

          Grade     Method:     REG/P-F/AUD     Many
          optimization    problems    arising   from
          practical applications are large scale, in
          the sense that they involve a large number
          of   variables  and/or  constraints.  This
          course  will survey  some recent numerical
          algorithms that can efficiently solve such
          problems.   While the  course will present
          the  theoretical foundations needed in the
          convergence  analysis of those algorithms,
          the   emphasis   will   be   on  practical
          applications.   Prerequisites:  MATH  630,
          MATH  650, MATH 651, or the consent of the
          instructor.

          Iterative Methods                                 

          Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  The numerical
          solution of partial differential equations
          often requires solving linear equations of
          sizes   prohibiting   the   use  of  exact
          solvers.   Such   problems  are  typically
          solved  via iterative methods augmented by
          various      (generic     or     specific)
          preconditioning  techniques.  This  course
          aims  to present  iterative methods beyond
          the  algorithms discussed in MATH 630. The
          first part of the course will cover Krylov
          space  methods (CG,  BICG, MINRES, GMRES),
          while  the second part  will be devoted to
          preconditioning,  the  objective  being to
          introduce  students to two important areas
          of   research:  domain  decomposition  and
          multigrid. Emphasis will be placed both on
          mathematical    aspects    and   numerical
          experimentation.  Prerequisites: Required:
          MATH   620,   MATH  630,  or  instructor's
          approval. Recommended: MATH 621, MATH 635.
