Mathematics 455 Course Prerequisites
First Semester Numerical Analysis
Students must have completed three semesters of calculus and an
ordinary differential equations course (Math. 350) with a grade of "C"
or better. Additionally, students should have a working knowledge of
Fortran (preferably Fortran 90), and
should have a good working knowledge of the techniques of calculus.
(An online tutorial in Fortran 90 is at
http://wwwcn.cern.ch/asdoc/WWW/f90/f90.html, while a copy of the official ANSI standard can be
found on UCS in /usr/local/doc/f90_std.ascii.)Any
