CS475/CM375 - Goals


Numerical linear algebra is a basic part of many problems in scientific computation. This course provides an overview of algorithms and numerical linear
algebra techniques to solve common problems that arise in many areas such as image processing, search engines, natural language processing, computational finance, aircraft design and artificial intelligence. The course is structured around four
major topics:
  1. solving special linear systems,
  2. least squares problems,
  3. eigenvalue problems, and
  4. singular value decomposition.


The topics we will cover include:
