Hey guys, I'm currently in a 2nd year Honors Physics program & I need to decide within the next ~2 weeks which of these two classes to take. Either Linear algebra II or Numerical Analysis. Heres are course descriptions as given on my Universities website Linear Algebra II Vector space examples. Inner products, orthogonal sets including Legendre polynomials, trigonometric functions, wavelets. Projections, least squares, normal equations, Fourier approximations. Eigenvalue problems, diagonalization, defective matrices. Coupled difference and differential equations; applications such as predator-prey, business competition, coupled oscillators. Singular value decomposition, image approximations. Linear transformations, graphics. Numerical Analysis Introduction to numerical analysis; polynomial interpolation, numerical integration, matrix computations, linear systems, nonlinear equations and optimization, the initial value problem. Assignments using a computer and the software package, Matlab, are an important component of this course. Which of these would be the most useful as an undergraduate? I appreciate all input, thanks!
