Applied Numerical Computing
Fall 2022 - Prof. Vandenberghe's lectures are not the most energetic, and at times it was hard to stay awake. Despite that, he was clear and straightforward, he ran like a well-oiled machine. Going to office hours was a humbling and inspiring experience; I felt smarter just talking to him. EE 133A was in some ways one of the most challenging, yet useful and interesting classes in the EE core curriculum! I also appreciated the fact that Prof. Vandenberghe wrote the textbook but was willing to give us pdf access for free, as well as an accompanying solutions manual. The material was well written.
Winter 2022 - This is not an easy class. 8hw 20% (some from textbooks with solutions, others from additional book without solutions) 1 mid 30% 1 final 50% Luckily we did everything online. And more lucky, final was one-day limit but unable to do them all. One thing annoyed me was that i got 0 point in one of problems in the midterm no matter what I solved up to 2 pages. Still zero points without a partial point.
