Numerical Linear Algebra Exam Resources

These resources should be helpful to those taking Mathematics Department PhD or First Year exam in Numerical Linear Algebra. A few things may be relevant to just the January, 2015 exam, but they should be generally useful.

The material is based on class lectures and the text Numerical Linear Algebra by Trefethen and Bau.

An important note on the text and the exam: The textbook sometimes uses informal, heuristic or sketches of proofs. However, all answers on a mathematics exam must consist of  complete and rigorous proofs.

Disclaimer: While the exam questions will certainly be in the areas given in the topics below, there is no guarantee that any specific problem or problems will be on the actual exam.
