Dr. Stefano Massei (SNS) will hold 8 additional exercise sessions containing a review of the course prerequisites (calculus, linear algebra and numerical analysis). They are held on Wednesday at 14:00 in room A1. They are meant to ensure that everyone is familiar with the same background material irrespective of their bachelor studies. These lectures do not contain material included in the exam syllabus, and they can be skipped if you are already familiar with these topics from your past courses.
Detailed lecture reports These reports are updated regularly after the lectures and describe in detail the material that has been covered in each of them. They are the most reliable source to know what has actually been covered in the course.
For the numerical linear algebra part:
The computer lab activities will be performed using MATLAB. Students of the University of Pisa can install MATLAB free of charge with the university's license. Instructions on http://doc.sid.unipi.it/images/1/17/Istruzioni_Installazione_MatLab_Student.pdf (instructions in Italian only, sorry, but with lots of pictures).
Some notes written by prof. Roberto Bevilacqua, former teacher of this course. They contain useful background material on linear algebra as well as some of the new content explained in the first lectures.
The students of the 2010-2011 edition of NMO produced a set of notes written in LaTeX (in Italian) and released them under a CC license. The program of the course has changed since then, but the notes may still be useful.
