Abstract : Consider the problem of solving a linear system of equations of the form Ax=b where x, b epsilon (R sup n) and A is a (nxn) nonsingular matrix. In a previous paper Householder has classified the general methods for solving the above set of equations into the following groups: (a) Triangular factorization of A; (b) Orthogonal-triangular factorization of A; (c) Methods of Modification; (d) Iterative techniques. Householder also points out in his paper certain relationships between the method of orthogonalization and the iterative method of projection. (Author)
