The course is part of the course [MAT-14-11-K-3] and is offered in block form as a four-hour lecture with two-hour exercises in the first half of the lecture period.

The course is accompanied by a programming lab course: [MAT-14-11AP-K-3].

Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: proof of successful participation in the exercise classes (ungraded)
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.


In this course the basic concepts and algorithms for the numerical solution of problems from linear algebra are treated:
  • numerical methods for linear systems of equations: Gaussian elimination, Cholesky methods, QR decomposition, perturbation theory,
  • linear curve fitting,
  • eigenvalue problems.
