Subject: Re: Matlab and teaching numerical analysis

I should say that I have enjoyed the discussion indeed. I would like to add
a small comment.

There are three almost independent entities: programming, a programming
language and numerical analysis. In the ideal case, they should be
taught separately, as, I guess, one of the goals in teaching should
be to make a student understand the difference between an idea and its
implementation. Let me cite a statement from

"We want to establish the idea that a computer language is not just a
way of getting a computer to perform operations but rather that it is
a novel formal medium for expressing ideas about methodology. Thus,
programs must be written for people to read, and only incidentally for
machines to execute."

This is very true especially for numerical analysis. Yet, it is hard to say
what to do in the real world. It clearly depends on a particular situation.

Subject: Re: Fortran vs. Matlab vs. ....

Dear readers,

I think the last comments of Mike Sussman along with those of Victor Pereyra
raised the fundamental issues.

I had experiences in Italy about teaching numerical analysis for engineers at
low level graduation courses and some of these students continued their
studies in specific courses of numerical methods for PDE and computational
fluid dynamics. I started by exploiting both Matlab and Maple softwares to
make easier the first steps of programming and debugging the codes as well as
for visualization purposes. After a few time, the students are able to use
rapidly the softwares but, what I think is more important, they focus on the
main ideas about how constructing a program for solving engineering problems.
Thereafter, the students that want to further specialize, found enough simple
the migration in the Fortran environment (and Tecplot for CFD visualization)
that I consider necessary for approaching large-scale problems with parallel
processors. Now we have available quad-core processors (SMP) at very low-cost
that allow us high performances with simple modifications in the Fortran codes
(OpenMP) that can be illustrated to the higher-level students.

I agree that scientific programming language should be better addressed as
material for specific courses.

Subject: MATLAB or not MATLAB? That is the question.

I totally agree with Mike Sussman. I do not care where professional Scientific
Computors learn how to program, but that enough of them choose to learn.

By the way,

"In fact, one of the saddest but most common conditions in elementary school
computer labs (when they exist in the developing world), is the children are
being trained to use Word, Excel and PowerPoint. I consider that criminal,
because children should be making things, communicating, exploring, sharing,
not running office automation tools." Nicholas Negroponte

Subject: matlab vs f90 or cpp -- back to the future


The recent discussion of programming languages in
undergraduate NA courses appears to have found a
consensus in the status quo:

As outlined by Victor, we distinguish between
general education and specialist advanced courses.
The choice of what software to use (matlab vs
programming languages) easily follows for each
kind of course.

However, Martin's original question betrayed
unhappiness with precisely this situation. So the
last several weeks of discussion have brought us
back to where we started.

I think what lies behind Martin's question is,
most numerical analysis educators lack knowledge
of advanced software. Consequently, they are
justifiably uneasy about the relevance of an
undergraduate NA syllabus that contains nothing
more than elaborations of formulas already known
to Lagrange and Gauss.

Indeed, it is easy to argue that the current way
of teaching numerical analysis -- independent of
scientific computing -- benefits no one but the
mathematics faculty. It reinforces the view of
pure mathematicians that any applied math they
can teach is easy, and any applied mathematics
they do not understand is not mathematics.

So I would like to direct this discussion to the
real question: how do we prepare students to
be both mathematically literate and capable of
contributing to the computational science that
addresses important engineering and scientific
questions of our day?

Best, --Joe

of about 30 countries all the world over. The Conference NCP07 will bring
together most leading specialists in both theoretical and computational
aspects of local and global approaches to nonconvex programming to highlight
recent advances, foster interactions and collaborations, and to discuss how
to expand the role of these fields in a lot of potential high-impact
application areas, such as (but not limited to):see the menu item
Announcement (which contains also the list of topics) in its website.
Contributions to the mathematical modelling and the solution of real-life
problems are particularly appreciated. The Conference will be composed of
