Course Contents and Goals
This course covers the design, analysis (accuracy, convergence, stability, and complexity), and implementations of numerical algorithms for solving linear systems, the least squares problems, and eigenvalue problems.  These includes, but not limited to, (selected topics from Chapters 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 of the textbook and other books)
--
Direct solvers such as Pivoting Gaussian Elimination, Chloskey factorization, condition numbers;
-- Jacobi, Gauss-Seidel iterative methods, Successive Overrelaxation (SOR),
-- Conjugate Gradients (CG), Krylov subspace methods;
-- Householder reflections, QR decomposition, Singular value decomposition (SVD);
-- Power and Inverse methods, QR Iterations, Hessenberg reduction.
-- Applications to solving partial differential equations, image processing, and data compression will also be discussed.
A major goal of the course is to equip students with the capability to apply and design efficient numerical methods for the large scale linear systems in their particular fields.
