Jon Walsh

I am a 4B Computational Mathematics major finishing up my degree this term.

Courses I've Taken

CM 339 Algorithms

CM 340 Linear Optimization

CM 352 Computational Methods for Differential Equations

CM 372 Numerical Linear Algebra


CM 442 Nonlinear Optimization

CM 443 Deterministic Operations Research Models

CM 452 Computational Methods for Partial Differential Equations

CM 473 Medical Image Processing

CM 476 Numeric Computation for Financial Modelling

In addition I have taken many courses in Physics and Econ. Please ask me if you have any questions about upper year Computational Mathematics! I have also taken many courses with MATLAB, so feel free to ask me anything on the language (or on GNU Octave, an open-source equivalent).

Hobbies and Interests

I am a avid baseball fan, and I am mostly taking this course for its application to sabermetrics, or the analysis of baseball statistics. I'm always interested in striking up a baseball conversation. Go Jays Go!

Did you know?

You can access the Matlab UI remotely! If you SSH into the Math servers include '-X' as a parameter. Then when the terminal comes up, use matlab_desktop to access the Matlab UI. This is useful when you need to use graphs in assignments but don't have time to get into campus. It isn't very fast, however.

e.g.

ssh -X username@student.math.uwaterloo.ca

matlab_desktop
