The standard problems whose numerical solution we will study are systems of linear
equations, least squares problems, eigenvalue problems, and singular value problems. Techniques
for dense and sparse problems will be covered; it is impossible to cover these areas comprehensively,
but students should still come to appreciate many state-of-the-art techniques and recognize when
to consider applying them. We will also learn basic principles applicable to a variety of numerical
problems, and apply them to the four standard problems.
