Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this book provides a concise introduction to computational methods for solving large linear systems of equations. The book treats iteration methods for symmetric linear systems from a polynomial point of view. Topics include orthogonal polynomials, Chebyshev and optimal polynomials, and orthogonal polynomials and Krylov subspaces.
MATLAB is used to solve numerous examples in the book. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available by contacting the author.
