These notes started as course notes for UCSD Math 174, in the fall of 2003.
Math 174 is a 10 week course in `numerical methods' for upper level
undergraduate students in engineering and the sciences.  This course is a
condensed whirlwind tour of numerical methods; unlike the (20-30 week) course 
in `numerical analysis' offered at the same university, the intended emphasis
is on methods and applications, rather than theory and proof.

COAUTHORS:

I encourage prospective coauthors to expand, improve, amend and alter these
notes, under the terms of the FDL license. 

BUILDING:

The build process relies on the following LaTeX addons:
 * `empheq' style file, available from the mh LaTeX bundle
 (http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/mh); this is package
 dev-tex/mh on Gentoo, texlive-latex-extra on Ubuntu;
 * Staffan Ulfberg's `alg' style file
 (http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/alg/); this is in 
 package dev-texlive/texlive-science on Gentoo, texlive-science on Ubuntu;

I rely heavily on makefiles to make my latex documents. In the main directory,
the command 
$ make
should make the file numas.dvi. Other relevant commands include:
$ make numas.ps
$ make numas.pdf
