# Modern Aspects of Linear Algebra

Share this page
*S. K. Godunov*

This book discusses fundamental ideas of linear algebra. The
author presents the spectral theory of nonselfadjoint matrix operators
and matrix pencils in a finite dimensional Euclidean space. Statements
of computational problems and brief descriptions of numerical
algorithms, some of them nontraditional, are given.

Proved in detail are classical problems that are not usually found
in standard university courses. In particular, the material shows the
role of delicate estimates for the resolvent of an operator and
underscores the need for the study and use of such estimates in
numerical analysis.

#### Readership
