Representation of real numbers in computers, behaviour of rounding errors during numerical computations, sensitivity

of a problem, numerical stability of an algorithm. We will analyse sensitivity of the eigenvalues of a given matrix and

sensitivity of roots of systems of linear algebraic equations. Then, the backward analysis of these problems will be

performed. The second part of the course is devoted to the methods of QR-decomposition, least squares problem, and

to several modern Krylov subspace methods for the solution of systems of linear algebraic equations and the Lanczos

method for approximation of the eigenvalues of a symmetric square matrix.
