 Course Description: This
course concerns the numerical solution of linear systems, linear least
squares problems (best approximate solution for an inconsistent linear
system), eigenvalue and singular value problems. We will introduce
numerical algorithms for the solution of these problems on a
computer, and analyze their efficieny and accuracy in the presence of
rounding errors. For the numerical solutions of the problems matrix
factorizations will be introduced, and their existence and uniqueness
will be discussed. The Krylovsubspace based iterative algorithms will
be studied as much as time permits. (See the course syllabus for issues such as grading, a crude course calendar and the formats of the exams.) Announcements:
