## Reading material

Of the reading materials listed below, I strongly recommend that you buy the book by Saad, but not necessarily any of the other ones.

- Y. Saad:
*Iterative Methods for Sparse Linear Systems*. 2nd ed. SIAM, 2003.**(main text)** - L.N. Trefethen and D. Bau:
*Numerical Linear Algebra*, SIAM, 1997. - J.W. Demmel,
*Applied Numerical Linear Algebra*, SIAM, 1997 . - G. Golub and C. Van Loan:
*Matrix Computations*.3rd ed, The Johns Hopkins University Press, 1996. - W. L. Briggs, V.E. Henson, S.F. Mc Cormick:
*A multigrid tutorial*, SIAM, 2000.

## Exercises

## Solutions

Solutions may appear even before the time when the exercise is supposed to be done. It is however strongly recommended to do the exercise before looking at the solution.
