Course content. The course is intended to give a comprehensive treatment to numerical algorithms
for solving the linear systems of algebraic equations. The computation errors and stability of the numerical
procedures will be studied from the prospective of finite precision calculations. Will be considered the direct
methods of matrix inversion, e.g., LU factorization and Cholesky factorization, the iterative methods, e.g.,
