MATH 517: Iterative Methods for Linear Systems


  • MATH 517. Iterative Methods for Linear Systems

    Content: Course will cover iterative methods for large-scale linear systems of equations. Topics will include matrix splittings and stationary iterations, Krylov subspace methods, preconditioning techniques, multilevel methods, and selected applications. If time allows, iterative methods for eigenvalue problems will also be covered. Particulars: familiarity with numerical linear algebra and Matlab programming, such as provided by Math 515 - Numerical Analysis I, is assumed.
