### AMATH481: Lecture F 12/09

Note: This post is part of my scientific computing course (UW AMATH481) in autumn 2016. The course web page is here.

In this lecture, we wrapped up our discussion of spectral methods for ODEs and PDEs. The material corresponds to Chapter 21 of “Approximation Theory and Approximation Practice”, which is not freely available (though much of it is contained in ch21.m which can be downloaded here). See also Chapter 4 of the course notes. Another good resource for this material is Nick Trefethen’s “Spectral Methods in MatLab” (from which we borrow several examples).

You can download the sketches and code from lecture here. For the code to run, be sure that you have downloaded Chebfun and have added the chebfun directory to your path. See the directions here.
