Basic Numerical Mathematics, Volume II: Numerical Algebra focuses on numerical algebra, with emphasis on the ideas of qcontrolled computational experimentsq and qbad examplesq. The existence of an orthogonal matrix which diagonalizes a real symmetric matrix is highlighted, and partitioned or block matrices are discussed, along with induced norms and inversion problems. Comprised of 12 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the manipulation of vectors and matrices, followed by an analysis of induced norms. The reader is then introduced to the direct solution of the inversion problem, first in the context of theoretical arithmetic (that is, when round-off is disregarded) and second in the context of practical computation. Various methods of handling the characteristic value problems are also considered, together with several iterative methods for the solution of a system of linear equations. Two applications are described: the solution of a two-point boundary value problem and the solution of least squares curve fitting. The book concludes with an account of the singular value decomposition and pseudo-inverses. This monograph will be of interest to mathematicians and students of mathematics.We have *- 5 a#39; , and this matrix has for its dominant 11 25 characteristic value 15+ W221 so that |A|= W15 +W221. ... These equations are necessarily consistent and we find |xi|: |x2 = 14: 5+ W221. 3.3. ... 128 Solutions to Selected Problems.
