Numerical methods dealing with problems of the linear control theory will be covered, especially:
  • general and structured eigenvalue problems, normal forms,
  • matrix equations (e.g. Lyapunov and Riccati) and their numerical solutions,
  • general theory of huge systems of equations,
  • reduction of model (especially based on singular value decompositions and Krylov subspace method).
