Introduction to Numerical Linear Algebra by Christoph BorgersCall Number: QA184.2 .B66 2022
Fit for students just starting to build a background in mathematics, this textbook provides an introduction to numerical methods for linear algebra problems. Introduction to Numerical Linear Algebra is ideal for a flipped classroom, as it provides detailed explanations that allow students to read on their own and instructors to go beyond lecturing, assumes that the reader has taken a course on linear algebra, but reviews background as needed, and covers several topics not commonly addressed in related introductory books, including diffusion, a toy model of computed tomography, global positioning systems, the use of eigenvalues in analyzing stability of equilibria, a detailed derivation and careful motivation of the QR method for eigenvalues starting from power iteration, a discussion of the use of the SVD for assigning grades, and multigrid methods.
