Course Description
Course Objectives: To provide students with a strong knowledge and understanding of the important algorithms in numerical matrix computations, as well as the difficulties involved in practical implementation and use of these algorithms. The course also gives students an increased understanding of the basic problems in the area, together with the sensitivity of each problem.

Detailed Description:

Prerequisites: Facility with a high level scientific programming language such as C, C++, Java, or Fortran, and a good introductory matrix theory course. Previous experience of numerical computations is also important, such as COMP 350 or MATH 317. Some assignments will be done by using MATLAB.
