This self-contained introduction to numerical linear algebra provides a comprehensive, yet concise, overview of the subject. It includes standard material such as direct methods for solving linear systems and least-squares problems, error, stability and conditioning, basic iterative methods and the calculation of eigenvalues. Later chapters cover more advanced material, such as Krylov subspace methods, multigrid methods, domain decomposition methods, multipole expansions, hierarchical matrices and compressed sensing. The book provides rigorous mathematical proofs throughout, and gives algorithms in general-purpose language-independent form. Requiring only a solid knowledge in linear algebra and basic analysis, this book will be useful for applied mathematicians, engineers, computer scientists, and all those interested in efficiently solving linear problems.

Reviews for Numerical Linear Algebra: An Introduction

'Wendland delivers an introductory textbook on numerical linear algebra intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in applied mathematics. The book covers fairly standard material in this area; it includes error analysis and ill-conditioning, direct and iterative methods for the solution of linear systems of equations, least squares problems, and eigenvalue problems. Additional advanced topics that are not usually covered in introductory textbooks include multipole expansions, domain decomposition methods, and compressive sensing. The book is generally theoretical and mathematically rigorous in its approach. Algorithms are given only in pseudocode. ... The text will be of interest primarily to instructors and students in graduate numerical linear algebra courses.' B.
