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 Krylov-subspace based iterative algorithms will be studied as much as time permits.
